Quote of the Day

Keeping with today's emergent theme…

"In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country. We don't have that in our country. In Iran we don't have this phenomenon. I don't know who's told you we have it."—Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, earlier today.

(With regard to Bill's earlier post about how the American Right views Ahmadinejad, it's just hilarious that they've failed utterly to notice how much they have in common with him—like the belief that same-sex attraction can be contained—nay, obliterated—with strict social rules, for a start.)
