Iran so far away.
I've been hearing bits and pieces about Iran in the news this week. Mostly it comes in the morning on CBC Radio 2 when I'm not yet all there. The election is for the role of President, the role of Supreme Leader wasn't really up for grabs. I think Hitchens got it right again (see Slate magazine: Don't Call What Happened in Iran Last Week an Election). Today the Allatoyah Khamenei was on the radio making claims about the Zionist media distorting the election. Is there is anything an anti-Semitic fascist theocrat can't blame on the Jews?
