Nut cases

What do you do with the President of Iran (I'm not going to try to spell his name). He's in town today for the opening of the general assembly. So are a lot of other world leaders. But from the reaction of the tabloids, you'd think it was jsut him and that he was leading an invasion. They have really gone out of their way to be ridiculous about it. Headlines like "go to Hell" and "The Evil has Landed" have graced the front of the Daily News and Post this week (interestingly, it's the News that has been the most vitriolic). I heard one cabbie interviewed saying that the President shouldnt' be allowed to go to Ground Zero because "he probably had something to do with it."

My God! How can we be surrounded by such ignorant idiots? Here in New York you'd expect people to at least know about 9/11. Iran had *nothing* to do with it. Whether you believe it was Al Queda or the CIA, there is no way that Iran could have been involved (with the earlier bombing of the WTC in the 90s, that's another story).

Yes, we know this guy is a holocaust denier, an enemy of Isreal, and critical of the U.S. There's a lot of evidence that his country is arming Shiite militias in Iraq--but complaining about that is totally the pot calling the kettle black, since us arming first (in no particular order), Isreal, Jordan, Iran, Afganistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia is a big part of why were in this mess to begin with. (did we arm Syria ever? Not sure. Probably). But as long as he's in town we should take him tot he Carnegie for a pastrami sandwich and then over to the Hustler club. Maybe he'll get laid. He looks like he could stand to relax a bit.
