The One Without the Happy Ending

“Thousands of opposition supporters have clashed with security forces in the centre of the Iranian capital, Tehran. Police used tear gas and detained dozens rallying in solidarity with uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia. There was one report of a death in Tehran.” [BBC]


Wait. I did like … ooodles of the watching wogs gone liberty. And now like I got to watch moresum? Like they can’t go OH? Whatevs.

Keeps getting worse for the Iranian Mullahs. Gee, that’s too bad.

@ManchuCandidate: Remember the “Ayatollah Assahola” bumper stickers?

Please tell me that at least the tear gas canisters didn’t say “Made in USA” like the ones in Egypt.

@Dodgerblue: “The crowd caught a whiff/of that crazy Casbah jive”

I’ve noticed Bushites are crawling out from out of the woodwork and claiming the credit for the protests. Liz Cheney apparently is a great middle east hero.

@Mistress Cynica: The pepper gas in my briefcase was made in Bennington, Vermont. In addition to being 10 percent pepper oil, it also has a UV dye for tracking bad guys.

TJ: Black Eagle visiting my neck of the woods Thursday, followed by a swing up to suburban PDX to no doubt hang with Mistress Cynica.

@Mistress Cynica: You made me laugh. I had visions of beatnik undergrads in woolen sweaters and Birks lovingly handcrafting each canister by hand while listening to Phish or whatever.

@Dodgerblue: never saw that one. but wish i had bought and saved a “don’t blame me i voted for bush” bumper sticker from back in the day when clinton took hw down and started the republican’ts off on their bat shit crazy streak.
