The Wrong Lessons


by Deacon Blues

What Iran's religious zealots learned from the Bush administration:

1. How to steal an election in God's name;

2. Have a real nuclear program built by A. Q. Khan instead of a fake one (like Iraq).

I would have been less certain of electoral fraud in Iran if the ruling party hadn't declared victory before the polls closed and then claimed a 69% share of the vote. That's one lesson they didn't learn from the Bushies: if you're going to steal it, at least make it look like a plausible victory instead of outright theft.
