Over at DailyKos, one particularly audacious blogger put the question to the public: who would you rather be American president, Bush or Ahmadenijad?
Well, the answer was Bush. But only by about 10 percentage points this morning. With a hat tip to LGF, the results this morning looked like this:
As of right now, Bush has Ahmadinejad by about 26 percentage points.
Some Kos-bloggers who “voted” for Ahmadinejad were quick to point out why they did so:
I voted for Mahmoud in this poll, mostly because he is obviously evil and thus less dangerous than GWB, who is at least as evil but for years hid that evil by using his “aw, shucks” persona as a blind.
Better evil in the open than evil wearing a friendly (and very stupid) face…
I’ll take Mahmoud before George. It’s not because he is any less despicable than Dubya, it’s just that he does not have supreme power over his military.
Were I to be placed in such a damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-move-to-Canada scenario, I think I would have no other option but to resort to doing a write-in: Kanye West 2008.
