Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Oh, Mahmoud

Ahmadinejad is under fire for hugging Hugo Chavez's mom.

My first reaction was "Wow, those mullahs be crazy!"  I mean you can't hug a grieving woman?  And Mahoud and Hugo were BFFs.

And then I realized this was about neutering Ahmadinejad before the coming elections.  He can't run, but the clerics have been trying to sideline him for the last few years.  This is just part of the plan.
