Mahmoud Ahmadinejad goes looking for gays in space
HAS Iran run out of monkeys to fire into space? News is that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is ready and willing to be the first Iranian to orbit the Earth in space. As he says:
“I am ready to be the first human to be sent to space by Iranian scientists. Sending living things into space is the result of Iranian efforts and the dedication of thousands of Iranian scientists.”
To say nothing of reading textbooks of what the Russians did in the 1960s.
At times like this we turn to the thoughts of Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.), who tweeted:
So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space – wasn’t he just there last week?
“That’s racist,” yelled Rep. Justin Amash (R., Mich.), who tweeted:
“Maybe you should wisen up & not make racist jokes.”
Of course, this is the Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who said that there are no homosexuals in Iran. But if he can get to a high enough vantage point he might spot one. Fingers crossed, Mahmoud. Happy hunting…
