Well, Iranian Prez Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came all the way to NYC to tell us there are no gays in Iran. Phew! Now that’s settled, I guess you can go back to futzing around with your nuclear chemistry set, Mahmoud.
This is my favourite excerpt from the Daily Mail article:
“In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said at Columbia University last night in response to a question about the recent execution of two gay men there. “In Iran we do not have this phenomenon,” he continued. “I do not know who has told you we have it.”
I believe that’s called a ‘circular argument’ – responding to allegations that you execute GAYS in your country by saying, “No WAY! We don’t HAVE gays!” Gee, I wonder why not?
Hell-OOOO-oooooo! I think I know the perfect host country for the Gay Games! Mahmoud could clearly use some rainbows and fabulousness in his life.
Incidentally, he reminds me of Baghdad “There are no infidels in Iraq” Bob, Iraq’s Information Officer at the time of the US-led invasion. Remember him?
Oh, and by the way, French President Nicolas Sarkozy d’Hotness is right pissed off — but in a diplomatic kind of way. I really wish he — or someone at the UN — would just let ‘er rip and say something like, “Look, we can’t let this jackass have nukes. If he spins one more centrifuge, he gets a missile up le derriere.”
