Hello! I am Glenn Church and I blog on Foolocracy.com. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased when Justin recently asked if I would cross-post some of our stories.
At Foolocracy, we select a “Fool of the Day”-someone in politics who has done something absolutely absurd. Then, just to re-emphasize the fool, we place a jester cap on his head and show him or her to the world.
Foolocracy attempts to be non-partisan. Fools come in all political persuasions, after all. While U.S. politics are the main thrust, there is considerable international coverage. Sometimes the posts have sizeable editorial comment, sometimes just a line or two and sometimes there are no words to describe the foolish deed. Â
My own background? I am a native Californian with a long history in political campaigns, international human rights and environmental issues.
Introducing today’s fool…
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is calling for fundamental change in the next American government. To achieve his goals, Ahmadinejad wants to debate John McCain and Barack Obama.
“I announce my readiness to meet with all the (US presidential) candidates of the United States in front of the media,” he said.
Ahmadinejad also sought to debate President George Bush at the United Nations a couple of years ago.
The Iranian President stated that Iran would not back down from its nuclear program. He also called the United States the “greatest threat” in the world.
“The (U.S.) military bases in the whole world should be eradicated and removed,” Ahmadinejad said.
Ahmadinejad has previously stated Iranian women enjoy high levels of freedom, the holocaust did not occur and gays do not exist in Iran.
Congratulations to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Foolocracy’s Fool of the Day!
