Ahmadinejad comes to New York

Strangeness abounds. Women have the highest freedom in Iran and there are no gays. Who knew?

He also tried the standard Holocaust denier rhetoric of “questioning, not denying.” It’s pretty transparent. He also waffled on his alleged comments about wanting Israel to be destroyed, which isn’t that surprising.

I don’t really care that he spoke at Columbia. We have nothing to be afraid of by having him speak here. Judging by the comments attributed to him in media reports, his image probably won’t improve.

    What I especially like is the righteous indignation we focus on all officials of all foreign countries that are less than perfect. We wouldn’t just focus on one bad actor that happens to be an elected official from a country we want to attack. That would be like, er, uh, propaganda.
