PermaLink I'm a dinner plate09/27/2007 10:40 PM
I watched with a lot of amusement when the Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, appeared at Columbia University this week.  For all the hoo-hah that surrounded this, there was a lot of amusement.

A lot of people questioned why Ahmadinejad was even asked to appear, and what Columbia University expected to accomplish. He was invited to speak by some members of the faculty, actually, which is laudable, but there were a lot of protests, something along the lines of "why should you give this guy a stage, anyway?"

Short answer: to let him make himself look ridiculous.

Which he did.

Mahmoud has been something of a character as far as a lot of the political and weird-news sites I follow are concerned. Because nobody can pronounce or spell his name (I had to cut and paste it from the San Diego Tribune website, I admit it, but I can in fact pronounce it), they've been making up fun alternatives for his name.

Ahmadouchenozzle
Ahmadickwad
Ahmadildo

and my personal favorite,

Ahmadinnerplate.

But seriously, the press acted like this guy was brought over here specifically to be ridiculed. Forget it, press... he did it to himself!

I mean, come on... he gets asked a perfectly good question by a CU student about Iran's rather brutal treatment of gays (they've killed some and tortured others). His response? "We have no homosexuals in Iran." This brought the biggest laugh of the evening... you could hear the loud laughter even on the somewhat-poor recording NPR had.

One commentator even went back to 1959 or so, when Nikita Khrushchev was here on a tour of the United States, when Henry Cabot Lodge was basically shadowing the Soviet leader and naysaying everything he said until NK basically said, "get rid of this guy or I'm going home!" Whereupon the White House called off Lodge and all was well, sorta. At least Khrushchev got to see the filming of Can-Can.

But that was a different time, and that was a completely different leader. Nikita was a tough bastard, crude but aware, and Mahmoud is a frickin' lunatic. A Holocaust-denier who phrases it in passive-aggressive BS. A right-wing pansy who bends over every time the old-guard clerics who really run the country pass gas. The last Iranian leader I had any respect for was Abol-hassan Bani Sadr, back during the Iran hostage crisis of 1979-1981, and the old clerics threw his ass out... old Ayatollah Kohmeini got him impeached and he damn near got killed before he sneaked out of Iran to Turkey. Nobody who's run Iran since then seems to have had half a brain.

The only reason anyone takes this dildo seriously is because (a) they have oil and (b) they're using their oil money to fund nuclear activities which could, potentially, lead to military use of nuclear weapons.

But that doesn't mean everyone has to take him seriously, at least not personally, and certainly not when his appearance at a major Western university ends up being the best stand-up comedy since Dave Chappelle went wacky a couple of years ago. Except with fewer black jokes.

I say, let him come back as often as he likes. Maybe after they both leave office, both he and Bush (the other great source of unintentional political comedy in the world) can get a show on Comedy Central or something.

I'd watch it.

Till Dave Chappelle comes back, at least.
