Kowtow In 30 Minutes Or Less...
And he'll still kowtow to you

Since President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad 'landslaide' election victory, Iranian presidential candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi has been arrested.

Tehran Univ. political scientist Ahmad Ziadabadi, and prominent political blogger Saeed Shariati were also arrested.

The campaign manager for another reformist presidential candidate Mehdi Karoubi, and the brother of former reformist Iranian president Mohammad Khatami, Reza Khatami, were arrested.

Leading Iranian reformist Mohammad Ali Abtahi was arrested.

Tens of thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets to protest Ahmadinejad 'stealing' and 'rigging' the election.

Seven have been killed so far.

However, since all this has been taking place, comments from The Zero have been rare, to say the least. Here's the only thing here's said to this point in time, from McClatchy Newspapers; President Barack Obama on Monday spoke cautiously in his first comments about the election, in an apparent attempt to preserve his initiative for direct diplomacy with Iran on a range of issues, including its nuclear program.

He said he was "deeply troubled" by the violence against the protesters, but that it was "up to Iran to determine its own leaders," and as "odious as I consider some of President Ahmadinejad's statements," he was determined to continue pursuing "tough, direct dialogue."
What a Tower of Jello. Then again, maybe Dingle Barry is taking notes on how to do it right.

Well, I'd be willing to bet, if it were an Israeli reprisal for a Hamas rocket attack, his condemnation would have been more... forceful?

I would put a different picture that focuses on a certain part of his anatomy. But then that would result in this blog getting a XXX rating.

And notice that the so-called "reformists" do not want the end of the islamic theocracy.
