LRC: "Many Iranian's have had about enough of President Ahmadinejad. He's rather an embarassment, it seems, with all his ranting and raving about Israel, etc., and his general militarism.

Ahmadinejad was the neocon dream candidate since they could paint Iran all the more as a member of the Axis of Evil with a hardliner like Ahmadinejad at the helm. But of course, unlike your standard Bush Administration official, most Iranians would rather mind their own business and pay the mortgage rather than start revolutions at home or abroad. Thus, the voters humiliated Ahmadinejad's friends in December's local elections and is subject to increasingly fierce criticism.

But what's so shocking in the article is that so many people are freely criticizing the government in print. Gee, I thought Iran was a theocratic dictatorship. Their mullahs are supposed to be worse than Hitler and Stalin combined. Oh wait, it also turns out that it is perfectly legal to be a Christian or Jew there. If only the same were true in the home of the chief Bush allies - Saudi Arabia."
