Ahmadinejad and Crazytime at the UN

This past week at the 65th opening of the UN General Assembly, it sometimes felt like the inmates were running the asylum.

 Iranian crazyman, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad  was nutcase in charge when he made a speech accusing the United States Government of orchestrating 9/11 -- Here's a juicy quote.

 ".. some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy, and its grip on the Middle East, in order to save the Zionist regime.

The " Zionist regeme" would be Israel. And here is another quote from the man who says the holocaust never happened...

“the majority of the American people, as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree that some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."

At this point in the speech, the American delegation, not surprisingly, walked out, accompanied by the UK and a number of other sane, rational  countries.

Now, the really crazy thing about this is that while crazy man was delivering his poisonous, racist, xenophobic rant, American cable news networks were totally ignoring what was going on at the UN and giving tons of pundit pronouncement time to Delaware, tea-party, right wing Republican candidate for governor, Christine O' Donnell.  I mean the President of a nation that wants to have a nuclear bomb is at the United Nations trash talking America and America is pre-occupied with a  right wing nut job who dabbled in witchcraft as a teenager and is now running for governor of one of the smallest states in the union.

What is up with that?  It's not only crazytime at the UN.  It's crazytime on cable news.  Could we please stop being silly and talk about the real issues?  Christine O' Donnell is a narcissistic nobody who is not ready for prime time and Iran's insane, repressive, murderous regime cannot be allowed to have the nuclear weapons they keep denying they are making.

Is anybody paying attention? The possibility of meaningful dialogue between the civilized world and the Iranian regime is becoming more and more remote as Iran gets closer and closer to having nuclear capability. Once we stop talking the bombing will begin and all helll will break loose.   It looks like that's what Iran wants.   The inmates really are running the asylum. God help us all.

You are right on, Sistah! I think the GOP secretly loves the teabaggers because it draws attention away from the real issues. If the MSM is covering Delaware's freakshow, then they won't be covering Iran at the UN, or other vital issues, like how two major health insurance companies will no longer cover children since children are now allowed to have preexisting conditions. Great post - keep fighting the good fight, GF!
