Endorsements Keep Rolling In
NOT The Onion, NOT The Daily Show, NOT Al Franken:
Bush Gets Endorsement From Iran, as Tehran Overlooks Bad Blood
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - The head of Iran's security council said on Tuesday the re-election of President Bush was in Tehran's best interests, despite the administration's axis of evil label, accusations that Iran harbors al-Qaida terrorists and threats of sanctions over the country's nuclear ambitions.The Kerry campaign should hire this man immediately to write his material.
"We haven't seen anything good from Democrats," Rowhani told state-run television in remarks that, for the first time in recent decades, saw Iran openly supporting one U.S. presidential candidate over another.
"We should not forget that most sanctions and economic pressures were imposed on Iran during the time of Clinton," Rowhani said of the former Democratic president. "And we should not forget that during Bush's era - despite his hard-line and baseless rhetoric against Iran - he didn't take, in practical terms, any dangerous action against Iran."
Good late-afternoon, folks. Have been messing with my art submission again (I think there's something pathologically wrong with my brain, that it can't decide what to do), and will likely be (gulp) doing more phoning tonight, so this may be it until late. But it's choice, so I was forced to present it to you.
