Ahmadinejad Closet Comedian

Ahmadinejad: Closet Comedian

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been a prime subject of cartoon lampooning for a long time now. But this week, for perhaps the first time ever, he caused people to laugh out loud, without the help of the cartoonists.

The highlight of Ahmadinejad's speech at Columbia University was his claim that Iran has no homosexual citizens. The hilarity was obviously lost on Ahmadinejad, but not on cartoonists, who were all over Iran this week. Hot on the heels of Larry Craig's recent homosexual heresy, Ahmadinejad's words were another gift to cartoonists, fresh out of the closet.
