In any competition, the participants vie for the top honor. In Iran there is a peculiar sport, one which the competitors try to one up each others with the most brazen bald-faced lie.

Here are the two finalists in the most recent competition, which was held under the title of “presidential inauguration”:

Islamist fascists’ lifetime absolute Führer said: Our young generation should not forget, prior to the revolution we experience dictatorship with all our being; now people are the ruler.

Islamist fascists’ ersatz president said: Iran is the skyscraper of democracy.


Which one deserves the top prize for shamelessness?

Does Federica (pictures ↑↓) qualify as a special category contender?


Airtight sanctions, a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
