Iran: Quote Of The Day

From a New York Times piece:

Quoted by Press TV, Abbas Ali Kadkhodaei, the spokesman for the authoritative Guardian Council — a 12-member panel of clerics charged with certifying the vote — denied claims by another losing candidate, Mohsen Rezai, that irregularities had occurred in up to 170 voting districts.

“Statistics provided by the candidates, who claim more than 100 percent of those eligible have cast their ballot in 80 to 170 cities are not accurate — the incident has happened in only 50 cities,” Mr. Kadkhodaei said.

C'mon guys! What's the big deal? Only 30% of the vote was a fraud. Amazing. Best of luck to the Iranian people. It's nice to see some group stand up for themselves and their rights. The American taxpayer could learn a thing or two from our Iranian friends.
