I'd like to think that even as a glorified propaganda arm of the IRG and ruling Ayatollahs, this mistake has got to be pretty embarrassing for the guys responsible. There's biased and then there's "gaping-mouth gullible" and this is definitely in the latter category.

"Although it does not justify our mistake," he said, "we do believe that if a free opinion poll is conducted in the U.S., a majority of Americans would prefer anyone outside the U.S. political system to President Barack Obama."

Oh yeah, we just love foreigners here. Especially Muslims.
