What, No Halo?

U.S. politics is boring.

From The Associated Press:


The current reformist salvo is a video clip sent by e-mail and on CDs of [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad telling a top cleric, Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi Amoli, that a "light" enveloped him during his address to the U.N. General Assembly in 2005 and that the crowd stared without blinking during the entire speech.


"A member of the (Iranian) delegation told me, 'I saw a light that surrounded you,' " Ahmadinejad said. "I sensed it myself too ... I felt the atmosphere changed. All leaders in audience didn't blink for 27, 28 minutes. I'm not exaggerating when I'm saying they didn't blink. Everybody had been astonished ... they had opened their eyes and ears to see what is the message from the Islamic Republic."


The best we can do is a guy who claims to have invented the Internet.
