Elections in Iran.... hahaha!

Well, it looks like its that time again. Elections in Iran. If there is such a thing. But I believe they have come a long way since the revolution of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Also have you noticed that all the friggin' ayatollahs' names start with a K and have some combination of meini at the end? What's the deal with that? Anyway... getting back to the point they are supposed to have elections this year and I suppose as expected a conservative candidate Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani is leading the race with a liberal candidate Mostafa Moin closing in fast.

No matter how the election watchers call this is there any doubt that Rafsanjani will not win? I mean this is Iran we are talking about. Even if the Parliament passes a law a group of Ayatollahs will overrule the doggone parliament itself... I mean is that even possible in a democracy that law-making body is overruled by a religious body? Geez... That's a theocracy not a democracy.

But supposedly Rafsanji is an independent minded conservative something like Mr. Bush himself. So, maybe they'll get along. Though the western right absolutely abhors the islamists in the middle east they have a lot in common with them. They are just in denial. A state like Iran or Saudi Arabia would be Pat Robertson's dream come true!!! But that's beside the point now.

Check out this article in the economist. Btw. if you haven't started reading this magazine, I have one thing to ask... WTF is wrong with you? Check it out...
