I know it's de rigueur to criticize the use of the News Flash tag, but in this case it really doesn't make any sense. Did anybody doubt that he wasn't going to win re-election given that he wasn't allowed to run? Did anybody doubt that he was going to leave office given that the mullahs are completely in charge?

This really is News Flash: Ric Romero edition.

Are we a little slow on the uptake this morning? The voting is done, the centrist won. Good news, for a change.
 
2013-06-15 01:13:53 PM  
And here I bet more than half of this thread believed Ahmedinejad was president for life and can't fathom the idea that Iran might have term limits.
 
2013-06-15 01:14:40 PM  
He's coming to the US to enter the Henry Winkler lookalike contest. Sure winner.
 
2013-06-15 01:14:54 PM  
Meh, as batshiat insane as he was; he was closer than anyone to breaking the power of the religious leaders of Iran.

/ goodbye, he could have been worse-man

See my previous comment. To most people in America, Ahmedinejad was essentially a Kim Jong-Il style dictator. This is mostly the fault of the media, who portrayed him as essentially a tinpot dictator ruling a country with zero democratic principles.

Which is utter bullshiat if you actually read even  one article about how Iran is run and what the situation is like there.
 
2013-06-15 01:16:06 PM  
Why is this a newsflash? They just had an election, we all knew that this was going to happening. You know, for a couple of years now. In fact, ever since the last election.

scottydoesntknow: The only question now is will he be replaced by someone less crazy, or more crazy?


Less crazy from the looks of it.

Apparently the new guy, Hassan Rohani, got elected in part because he was favored by the supporters of the now-defunct Green Movement.

So probably an improvement, don't know how much of one, but better then nothing.

FTFA:  Hands up who knew how much prestige he won by instituting pensions for the thousands of sightless female carpet weavers of Iran, blinded by their profession by the age of 40.

Can someone please tell me how the hell one goes blind carpet weaving?  Is it eye strain, or some horrible mishap with the needles in which you polka your eyes out?  I have to say, if you can't keep from jabbing the needles in your eyes, you're probably not a very good carpet weaver.

Why did the author feel the need to take several pot shots at Israel in an article about Ahmadinejad ?

Supposedly he campaigned on a platform of improving relations with the West in order to ease sanctions, and he's a former nuclear energy negotiator, so he's got the chops.

We'll see what he does, though. He's still beholden to Qom, first and foremost.

Because he's English.  They are just as anti-semitic as the rest of Europe; they're just generally more polite about it.

I don't think they thought that at all. In truth, I don't think much thought is given to Iran. That said, this election has been coming for a long time, and most reporting on Iran brings up the theocratic nature of the government and how the mullahs are in complete control.

Probably carpet fibers in the air causing some sort of constant eye damage.

Hopefully Iran will get another moderate like Khatami, but who knows since the candidates need to be Quds tested, Imam approved.

Gotta believe it's from eye strain.

Focusing in at six inches every day, ten hours a day for thirty years must raise hell with the peepers.

It's largely a myth carpet weavers over 40 can't see well enough to weave anymore and can be fixed with glasses most of the time all they need is reading glasses but if you live in an area with 3rd world health care not much can be done
