Thing I read today that I wish I could un-read...

Because it makes my misanthropy feel a little more justified. Any my misanthropy is healthy enough that it doesn't exactly need any additional TLC.

"Why I Have A Little Crush on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Sun Sep 23, 2007 at 05:50:02 AM PDT

I know I'm a Jewish lesbian and he'd probably have me killed. But still, the guy speaks some blunt truths about the Bush Administration that make me swoon...

Okay, I admit it. Part of it is that he just looks cuddly. Possibly cuddly enough to turn me straight. I think he kind of looks like Kermit the Frog. Sort of. With smaller eyes. But that’s not all…

I want to be very clear. There are certainly many things about Ahmadinejad that I abhor — locking up dissidents, executing of gay folks, denying the fact of the Holocaust, potentially adding another dangerous nuclear power to the world and, in general, stifling democracy. Even still, I can’t help but be turned on by his frank rhetoric calling out the horrors of the Bush Administration and, for that matter, generations of US foreign policy preceding."

How ironic that it was posted juts a day before Ahmadinejad made a speech in which he claimed: "In Iran, we don't have homosexuals like in your country. We don't have that in our country. In Iran, we do not have this phenomenon. I don't know who has told you that we have it."

Everyone else is saying it so I will too. You know why there are "no homosexuals" in Iran? Suspected homosexuals are HANGED. If ever there were an argument for staying closeted...

So the gay jewish girl can just put aside the genocide, extremist, fascism, nuclear proliferation, and holocaust denial because this raving lunatic happens to also dislike Bush. How fucking selective do your morals need to be to make that leap? This is what I expect to hear from disconnected, head up their own ass, extremist, lacking all critical thought ultra right wing neo-cons. Not that the dailyKos has ever overwhelmed me with its balance, restraint, and forethought. "I need an unbiased opinion that really takes into account all the facts... I know, DailyKos!" is something I have never ever ever thought. But FUCKING A, MAN.

I knew there were a lot of thoughtless bastards out there who made it difficult to have more liberal leaning ideals. I knew that there were extremist fucks on both ends of the scale that made it difficult for sane moderate people to be heard. But this incredibly narrow idiot might as well have posted saying that, for all his faults, Hitler was at least a great painter and she respected him for that. Oh all that other stuff? bad bad, totally, for sure.... but man when it came to his painting...
