From this morning’s NYT:

Iranian Leader Wants Purge of Liberals From Universities

Hmm… that headline sounds familiar…

Oh, yeah:

Conservatives push to counter liberal professors

Hey Dan, Andrew Sullivan made this comparison a couple days ago too.

It's time to fight fascism with fascism.

Bush for Supreme Decider!

It is uncanny how similar the rhetoric is.

For all we know, that nutcase in Iran could be an administration plant who will conveniently disappear once the invasion begins.

Uh, yeah, that seems likely.

Why the doubt, FNARF? After all, it wouldn't be the first Iranian leader we've planted. Granted, they are usually on our side, to the point of pissing people off, but this might be a new approach.

Remember the rumors about him being one of the hostage takers? The release of the hostages is widely thought to have been engineered by GOP operatives. Maybe they bought him off.

Sorry if that's too tinfoil hattish for you, but we have too long a history of fucking with this country for me to discount it.

There is more similarity between the Bushies and the Iranian Theocracy than there is between the Bushies and normal Americans.

well stated Will. Any coincidence that they both want total control?

Nope, sadly.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is Pat Buchanan.
They're both really boring.
