When the nutballs in Iran burn and deface pictures of Lord Obama Reuters calls them "hardliners." When they do the same to President Bush or VP Cheney they're just the average Iranian citizen having a bit of an understandable lark. Still, as our friends at Unwelcome Distractions would say, this is an Unwelcome Distraction for our incoming Messiah, no? Wasn't he supposed to turn the world on with his smile, suddenly make a nothing day seem worthwhile? Wait, that was Mary Tyler Moore. Sorry.
