Showing Ahmadinejad the Love

Sphere: Related Content

Matt Yglesias gets a warm fuzzy feeling when he sees the vile jew-hating Iranian leader:

I keep talking about this with people in real life, but it deserves a blog mention as well -- Mahmoun (sic) Ahmadinejad has a pretty sweet hipster style. It all starts with a beard not unlike the one I and many of my twentysomething male friends sport. But it goes deeper. The man went without a tie to address the UN General Assembly. And I was in a bar where the TV was showing his interview with Anderson Cooper (it's DC, these things happen) and while there was no sound, he certainly looked witty and charming. There was also this clip of him walking down some hallway shooting the shit with Kofi Annan. It's like diplomacy! Bush should try it. One gets the sense that he's getting his stody red tie-wearing ass kicked this session by sundry third world goons and it's really not a proud moment for the United States.

A few things here Matty-boy. That man with a "sweet hipster style" is in the midst of building a theocracy in the mideast that would make the Taliban seem downright secular. In fact, if you lived in that mans nation, you'd be thrown in jail for A) sitting in a bar and B)watching the subversive CNN.

Next time you feel like getting the obligatory reach around from a thug dictator, you may want to reconsider posting it. If you're not embarrassed, you should be.

Note the comments where the "intellectual" left debates the hipness of such great and loved leaders as Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky and Mao.
