Sharon and Shaul - The Tragic Kings

כד וַיֹּאמֶר שָׁאוּל אֶל-שְׁמוּאֵל חָטָאתִי, כִּי-עָבַרְתִּי אֶת-פִּי-יְהוָה וְאֶת-דְּבָרֶיךָ: כִּי יָרֵאתִי אֶת-הָעָם, וָאֶשְׁמַע בְּקוֹלָם.

כה וְעַתָּה, שָׂא נָא אֶת-חַטָּאתִי; וְשׁוּב עִמִּי, וְאֶשְׁתַּחֲוֶה לַיהוָה.

כו וַיֹּאמֶר שְׁמוּאֵל אֶל-שָׁאוּל, לֹא אָשׁוּב עִמָּךְ: כִּי מָאַסְתָּה, אֶת-דְּבַר יְהוָה, וַיִּמְאָסְךָ יְהוָה, מִהְיוֹת מֶלֶךְ עַל-יִשְׂרָאֵל.

כז וַיִּסֹּב שְׁמוּאֵל, לָלֶכֶת; וַיַּחֲזֵק בִּכְנַף-מְעִילוֹ, וַיִּקָּרַע.

כח וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו, שְׁמוּאֵל, קָרַע יְהוָה אֶת-מַמְלְכוּת יִשְׂרָאֵל מֵעָלֶיךָ, הַיּוֹם; וּנְתָנָהּ, לְרֵעֲךָ הַטּוֹב מִמֶּךָּ.

כט וְגַם נֵצַח יִשְׂרָאֵל, לֹא יְשַׁקֵּר וְלֹא יִנָּחֵם: כִּי לֹא אָדָם הוּא, לְהִנָּחֵם.

ל וַיֹּאמֶר חָטָאתִי--עַתָּה כַּבְּדֵנִי נָא נֶגֶד זִקְנֵי-עַמִּי, וְנֶגֶד יִשְׂרָאֵל; וְשׁוּב עִמִּי, וְהִשְׁתַּחֲוֵיתִי לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ.

לא וַיָּשָׁב שְׁמוּאֵל, אַחֲרֵי שָׁאוּל; וַיִּשְׁתַּחוּ שָׁאוּל, לַיהוָה
The big differences are that Sharon has said time and time again that he doesn't need to apologize to anyone, nor does he see the error of his ways, nor does he acknowledge that his kingship is not כוחי ועוצם ידי עשה לי את החיל הזה
Sharon and his family will forever be remembered by Jewish History for the מעשה חורבן they wrought upon Israel.
For the Utter and Complete Destruction of all Jewish Life in Gush Katif:
לא נשכח ולא נסלח -- ואין יום כיפור מכפר

Using blogs to attract new customers
With traditional online marketing tools becoming more expensive, retailers are turning to alternative techniques, such as blogs, podcasts and RSS feeds.

Sha'ul was the last king before the king from Shevet Yehuda - David Hamelech - arose.

As Rav Kaduri said, Sharon will be the last Prime Minister in the Israeli government as we know it. Be'ezrat Hashem, the King from Shevet Yehuda - Melech Hamashiah will rise immediately after Sharon's reign.
