Blogging in the Name Of Allah...

Well, if you can suppress, oppress, jail and otherwise censor'em, what else is left to do but join'em? You heard right, undoubtably after reading my retrospective on skateboard ramps at West Point, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran has fired up his own blog. Tim F. at Balloon Juice says that him and John Cole won’t be adding him to their blog roll until the Iranian president, who was elected in a landslide after nullifying the candidacy of all his other opponents, takes their Online Integrity Pledge.

The blog also features an on-line opinion poll question in the upper left corner asking readers: “Do you think that the US and Israeli intention and goal by attacking Lebanon is pulling the trigger on another world war?” radial buttons for yes/no follow. I went ahead and checked “No” and hit the “Vote” button. After a few seconds, I got a message that read, “You are completely wrong and probably had dinner with that Wrascal Wrushdie fellow just last night (spoken like Elmer Fudd). I have your IP address and will be dispatching a team of guys with those big curved swords and MC Hammer pants to lop your head off you Danish newspaper readin’ infidel” (Actually, I got a server timeout error). When you select “post a comment”, you're treated to Mr. Ahmadinejad’s biography which read’s like the guy in The Jerk, “I was born a poor black child…”.

I look forward to his thoughts on the upcoming 2006/07 football season (I've heard he hates Notre Dame "(...all of them sons of infidel whores!") and wish him a hearty welcome to the blogosphere. Hopefully, sorry, God willing, he'll soon post an avatar of himself. Mr. President, if you need help I'm only a click away.

P.S. Does someone out there know how spell curse words in that squiggly writing?
