Ezra Klein says of Ahmadinejad at Columbia: He’s not being feared. He’s being laughed at. Imagine how the Iranian people feel seeing these clips (and they’re seeing them). Imagine how the rest of the Iranian government feels being made to look so foolish — and all for this jester’s dreams of personal aggrandizement. The Bush […]

Allah calls it a “child martyrdom” video but I call it an audition video for Columbia University President Lee Bollinger.

Gerard van der Leun says that we all owe Columbia University President Lee Bollinger a big, fat apology (via Instapundit). So does “T-Steel” writing at The Moderate Voice (via memeorandum).

Incident to Mad Mahmoud’s claim of a gay-free Iran, Jeff Goldstein delivers the question of the week: Is this a scientific anomaly based on some sort of Persian resistance to chemical differences in the brain?
