Iran’s Harriet Miers?

It’s not likely to generate a sympathy call from Dubya, but Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has struck out for the third time trying to get a nominee for oil minister confirmed by Iran’s parliament. Mohsen Tasalotti — Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s third pick for Iran’s oil minister post — is no Harriet Miers. His nomination was rejected by the Majlis according to the Beeb’s report not because of his qualifications but as a result of rumors about his personal life and fortune. And how could such rumors be spread in a totalitarian state? On the internet, of course.

Taking a short break from planning the nuclear obliteration of western civilization, Ahmadinejad said, “The government respects the choice of parliament, but unjustly accusing a brother on an unknown internet site… is not fair.” There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that Ahmadinejad has hired Dan Rather and Mary Mapes to produce shows for Iranian TV entitled, “Only Infidels Blog,” and “Why the UN should control the internet.”
