And Iran, While You Slept

MOBILE PHONES LOVE FREEDOMAccording to Iran state radio, seven demonstrators were killed Monday night. Iran's "Guardian Council" (mmm, hmm) has now said it will recount the vote in "contested areas." Is a limited recount enough? Not bloody likely. Outside Iran, people are looking into the raw election data-and howling with laughter. And Ahmadinejad supporters are having some fun with the western media still present and active: "The people who claim vote rigging should look first into the election of George W Bush in 2000 and how it was stolen from Al Gore. The West is a sore loser when it comes to the result of a democracy which is against its wishes."

Blaming America is probably a very good tactic for Ahmadinejad at this point.

I think the person who compares the election to Bush's makes an excellent point: the US did it, so it should be okay for everyone to do it too! Fair is fair.

Funny how, with his response, he is essentially admitting to rigging the damn thing.

He really is George W. Bush! As in dumb!
