That’s what I’m interested in as well. Major victory for Iranian women and all women, perhaps. I hope he actually listens to his wife.

The One will allow the mullahs to develop the bomb if they cut back on all the anti Israel talk, they accepted and replaced the former president, was that the plan?

If he has in fact lost, then that was for sure the plan.

Well...not so fast. Reuters reports that BOTH are claiming victory, and the voting is still going on.

“Millions of Iranians streamed to polling stations, causing voting to be extended by four hours to 10 p.m. (1730 GMT) to allow more people to cast ballots, the Interior Ministry said.”

Sounds like ACORN is running the election, and nutjob is counting on the “cemetery vote”.

Obama is already taking credit that his speech in Cairo is what did it.

Wow, Iran is no longer a threat.

CNBC announced live with Jim Cramer about 10 mins ago right off the wire that the Nutjob had lost and it was just crossing their wires.

Cramer of course in all of his wisdom says...great news for the west...until Iran gets out of the business of nuclear weapons and terrorism there will be no good news from that country as far as I am concerned.

Hasn’t the left been telling us that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s opinions and words don’t matter because he’s only President and it’s really the mullahs who run Iran? How much you wanna bet that changes if Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lost.
