Bush on Iranian presidency: Extreme Irony
This letter in our local paper:
"The winner of the most recent presidential election in Iran is a conservative, nationalistic religious fundamentalist. The winner of the most recent presidential election in the United States is concerned that such a man may not be the best choice for furthering efforts to attain peace in the Middle East and has even questioned the legitimacy of the electoral process that brought the president of Iran to power. I am not making this up."
I thought it was a great letter--a writer who understands the irony of the Bush presidency, and its particular world view.
