The Devil wears no Tie

8 Oct

Once upon a time, there was a president. A president…. who may or may not have taken American embassy staff hostage in 1979.

A president….. who was a professor of engineering.

A president who may believe that developing nuclear weapons will hasten the return of the 12th imam and bring the end of the world.

An unpopular president…. who does not really have the final say in running his own nation’s foreign or domestic policy (that would be Ayatollah Khamenei and the Guardian Council of religious figures).

And quibbles about little things…. like whether the Holocaust happened or not (it did).

Who happened to make a speech at Columbia University.

And was introduced as a “petty and cruel dictator” by the president of Columbia in a very good, if not a bit overdone speech (a bit harsh really since Ahmadinejad was elected in a landslide and can’t dictate much).

And who already has a ready-made beard of villainy should we ever decide to invade Iran. Oops?

Because who wants a war if the bad guy doesn’t have facial hair?
