Idiot of the Day: Ahmadinejad says Iran is gay free! Wowzers!

Mahmoud the Crazy got quite the chilly reception today at his speech at Columbia. Usually, when you’re introduced, the speaker gives the audience a few bullet points about the guest’s qualifications or background, maybe even a funny anecdote…. not so much for the Iranian President. The head of the school called him a “petty and cruel dictator” in his introduction. Awwwwkward!   The entire talk was verrrry colorful, but I personally found this bit to be  my favorite little gem:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad skirted a question about the treatment of homosexuals in Iran on Monday, saying in a speech at a top US university that there were no gays in Iran.

“In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country,” Ahmadinejad said to howls and boos among the Columbia University audience.

“In Iran we do not have this phenomenon, I don’t know who has told you that we have it,” he said.

Wow. That’s amazing. How delusional can one person be, honestly?!  It’s like he’s trying to address some rumor in the locker room!
