Another Conservative for Obama

Posted by Dan Draney on October 24, 2008

We hear lots of stories about Obamacons, conservatives who are supporting TheOne in his quest to ascend to his rightful place in the American firmament. Now another prominent conservative voice has joined the choir:

Larijani: Iran prefers Obama – Israel News, Ynetnews: “Iranian parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said Wednesday that Iran would prefer Democrat Barack Obama in the White House next year. Larijani also dismissed any idea that the US would attack Iran.

‘We are leaning more in favor of Barack Obama because he is more flexible and rational, even though we know American policy will not change that much,’ Larijani said at a press conference during a visit to Bahrain.

How to deal with Iran and the crisis over its nuclear drive has been one of the foreign policy issues in the Nov. 4 race for the White House between Obama and Republican John McCain.

Larijani, a leading figure in the conservative camp in Iran, also said the United States was too busy dealing with the global financial crisis to consider waging an attack on Iran.” [emphasis added]

Who knew Iran had conservatives, too? We feel better just knowing there are prominent figures in the Iranian government who support small government, the market economy, low taxes and individual liberty. If even Iranian conservatives can come out in support of Barack Obama, we can all rest easier at the prospect of an Obama Dynasty.

Larijani also revealed that he has personally donated the maximum amount to Obama’s campaign, 37 times so far.

Iran Captures Squirrel Nest of Spies

Posted by Dan Draney on July 21, 2007

The Iranian government actually arrested 14 squirrels for “spying.” What’s even more hilarious is that they admitted it. The Iranians, not the squirrels, although we’re sure it won’t be long before those Revolutionary Guards wring a confession out of those little rodents.

You can see in this video, just how dangerous squirrels can be.

Seriously, though, we can almost imagine some bored marines on the border tying some old electronic parts around some squirrels and releasing them into the Iranian wild as a gag. Could it have been any more successful?
