I am SO Not Putting This Guy on My Blogroll
The Iranian president has started a blog. You can find it here. Click on the appropriate flag for the language of your choice. (He is desperately in need of an editor for his English version.)
As demonstrated on 60 Minutes last night, he's certainly a wordy fellow. But he plans to correct this in future:
The blog was 2,000 words long in English and dated Friday. At the end of the blog, Ahmadinejad wrote: "From now onwards, I will try to make it shorter and simpler."
I'm almost tempted to tag him for that "Five Strange Things," chain thingy that was going around the blogosphere a few months back. Wonder how he'd answer.
1) I think the Holocaust didn't happen.
2) I'm crazy.
3) I believe in dressing "casual" for a 60 Minutes interview. (In Iran we call this "Casual Sundays Before an Audience of Infidels.")
4) I sent a rambling, seemingly endless letter to George Bush a while back, and expected him to answer.
5) While I don't care about my wardrobe, or my facial hair, I do believe in getting my teeth whitened. (Seriously -- did anyone else notice his teeth last night? They were like something from a Crest commercial. - ed.)
6) Okay, I know it's only five, but that's not enough for me. Did I mention about the Holocaust?
Whatever. I just hope he never sends in a link when I'm hosting Carnival of the Cats.
And may I say, he'd better watch what he posts. Bloggers in Iran are having a rough go of it these days.
(Update: I just checked His Nuttiness' blog, and it appears to have disappeared...for now. Maybe it's overloaded with visitors?)

That guy is gross. You just think the muslim ME couldn't get a creepier, or uglier guy than Yassar as their spokesperson, and along comes what's his face, the president of Iran. I do hope he seeks an extreme makeover before they give him the noble peace prize.
He looks like a crack whore on a ten day binge.

Now now, let's not stoop to personal attacks here you guys. I mean, come on give the guy a break. How would you expect him to look, considering his mother was a goat.

"I am SO Not Putting This Guy on My Blogroll"
As if you would put a heterosexual male on your blogroll :-) You probably haven't seen a living, breathing "het" in years...

I have a suspicion that the Iranian PM is on the personal rolodexes of many a CBC correspondent (great guy that he is - and a frequent watcher of CNN International and the Communist Broadcasting Corporation, to boot).

I posted on that just last night, myself.
And left a couple of totally offensive comments for him that didn't pass moderation.
My post is here:
Why don't YOU leave a nice little comment for little Madmud?
Wouldn't that feel good?

If you care for a good laugh, read the link of Canadian Sentinel.

Yep... while reading my comments to Ahmadinejad, just imagine his reaction...
I really let 'im have it all... and the kitchen sink! ;-)

The Canadian Sentinel,
Sheeeesh, enough of the semantics, why not tell him what you really think? The rant on the site was predictable but that has to be the ugliest webpage I’ve seen in years. Matches the contents I guess!

"I fart wetly"? AHH-HAAH-HAAH-HAAH ...

Speaking of not seeing a het in years, how is prison life treating you? Your lawyer really screwed you huh?
I see you have more time alloted on the prisoner-use computer, must have worked real 'hard' for it I'll bet!

Harry above must be a leftist.
Never commented on my site before. Sounds like he made a snap judgement. Typically leftist reaction to the real world.
I note also that his last name is "Mercer".
Could well be related to Rick Mercer, y'know, that frizzy-headed guy who thinks he's funny...
"Ugliest webpage"? Guess Harry prefers the webpage of a bloodthirsty, world-destruction-bent tyrant the likes of whom we've not witnessed since that little piece of poopie-woopie named "Adolf"...

You have taken my comments out of context. The website comment and rant were in reference to Ahmadinejad but you seem to have already made conculsions so I'll leave you with them. And here I thought personal attacks were the domain of the left.
Posted by: Harry | 2006-08-15 6:09:17 AM
Did you contribute to Madman Ahmadinejads poll?

Harry: My bad. Sorry about that. I now realize you were referring to Madmud's site, not to mine.
I therefore withdraw the previous comment of mine directed at you.
Please accept my sincere apology.
As for "personal attacks", though it sometimes seems that leftists have a virtual monopoly on personal attacks, I've seen a small number of conservatives make personal attacks, including upon myself, and get banned from some blogs' comments sections.
Nobody's perfect... and I'm obviously no exception.
And I agree that Madmud's site is utterly yukky.
All those flowers... damn... Ahmadinejad's clearly a sissy little girlie-man! Who designed his site, the "Queer Eye for the Jihad Guy" fellows in Iran?
Posted by: The Canadian Sentinel | 2006-08-15 12:24:47 PM
Not a problem, perhaps I should have been a little more specific but it was clear as mud to me. In any event, you have managed a first! There wasn’t a name in the English language I haven’t been called other than a leftist. Don’t ya love firsts?
I don’t engage in personal attacks and I think as conservatives, we should try and keep it that way (After all, we already know we’re right.). I’ve been hammered before on Blogs and just see them as unsophisticated cretins typing words on an illuminated screen but it has almost exclusively been from that "other" side.
In any event, nice chatting with you but I have to run, late for my Marxist/Leninist rally for the working class. Have fun!
Queer Eye for the Jihad Guy indeed.... LOL

That makes twice now you made me crack up out loud - I'm just glad I wasn't drinking anything at the time because I could have hurt myself. Ever think of doing stand-up? I don't know if you're always this funny, if you're just on a roll or if it only applies to jihad, but keep up the good work! THINK FUNNY!
Posted by: Democrat | 2006-08-15 7:10:45 PM
Harry... this isn't the first time I accused a non-leftist of being a leftist. Maybe I think everyone's a leftist unless they demonstrate otherwise. Perhaps I'm just taking the safest approach so the leftists won't first make nice with me... and as soon as we disagree, they call me a "hateful extremist" or something just for rejecting a politically-correct dogma which they badly want to write in stone as if a Commandment or something.
Please feel free to drop by my site. I sometimes deal with actual leftists... and don't always ban them.
Democrat, I do the funny stuff all the time on my blog. I transition from dead serious to funny as I find mixing serious stuff with funny words and imagery is good humor as well as helping to underline a point.
As for doing standup, of course, I've considered it. In fact, been doing it all my life. After all, I'm a guy and everyone knows guys stand up to do their business... the number one, that is; not the number two... I believe that the Islamofascists in those long white robes do number two standing up, hence the long robes, though why not brown? They're, after all, so full of "number two" they just can't help themselves... it falls out of their hineys all the time without warning... too bad wearing diapers is un-Islamic... unless it's on their heads, which is why they're called "sheet heads".
