Were you one of the 32% who said they would vote for Mr. Ahmadinejad over President Bush in the DailyKos poll the other day?

“Seriously? I don’t know any,” the president replied, in apparent surprise. “Give me some addresses so we’re able to go to visit them and learn about them.”
Given that sodomy is a crime punishable by death in Iran, it was a particular chilling offer.
Would you care to think again?
