Iran Elections...

It doesn't matter who wins the race, if those evil fucking Mullahs who are using this whole nightmare as smoke and mirrors for their nucleur ambitions aren't the ones up for election.

So, I ain't green at Twitter. I ain't hopeful for the future of Iran, either way.

Frankly, I am quietly wishing people would stay off the street for a little while, and not get themselves killed over what is just the competition for the equivalent of the Head of PR Department.

Secretary of the Press isn't worth dying for, folks.

(God bless all of you, and good luck out there!)

These people aren't speaking out for a leader, they are speaking out for a symbol. They want reform. I personally think our leadership should be a little more excited about their desire for reform.

Also, you're too young to be this fucking cynical!

If the protesters win, the symbol is a lie, and the evil remains.

If they lose, the symbol is honest, and the evil remains.

It's not cynical to see how both of these situations actually totally suck.

I suppose it's the optimist in me that looks at this situation and sees that there is some hope for change in Iran. I know it won't be a true revolution, but sometimes it only takes a single snowball to begin an avalanche.

is when the throats you slit
start to scream with their feet
