The "Stay Classy" Award Goes to ... David Landau of Ha'aretz, because he exudes savoire faire, elan, and, well, class (Averted Gaze). From The Jerusalem Post:

"Ha'aretz editor David Landau told US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at a recent private dinner that Israel 'wants to be raped by the US' and needed more vigorous American intervention to resolve Middle East conflicts, according to a report in the New York Jewish Week.

"Landau made the remarks at a confidential gathering of Israeli guests at the home of US Ambassador to Israel Richard Jones on September 10, the Jewish Week reported on its Web site Thursday.

"The paper said that Landau, who was seated next to Rice, reportedly referred to Israel as a 'failed state' politically that needed a US-imposed settlement. It added that Landau reportedly 'implored Rice to intervene, asserting that the Israeli government wanted 'to be raped' and that it would be like a 'wet dream' for him to see this happen.'"

Class act, that David Landau.

The Did She Actually Use The Word "Lover" Pirate Goes to: Angelina Jolie. From the 3AM Girls: "Quelle surprise... Angelina Jolie just loves filming sex scenes! The mum-of-four says: 'You're two adults and you enjoy each other, and you know it doesn't mean anything.' Good job, too, as Angelina shared a sex scene with partner Brad Pitt's friend Matt Damon in The Good Shepherd. But she insists: 'The difference between kissing Matt and Brad is simple. One's a friend and the other is my lover.'''
