got a bunch of residents in mental hospital and made them ministers after a thorough consultation with 3 five year olds. They had said it would be fun to have the country run by a bunch of lunatics. I beleive AN said he could not agree more and duly nominated his cabinet.


BTW, here are the results, note the defense

minister... those who were dreaming of the "divided" Iran's foreign policy and were misreading the events in Iran, take note :-) :-)

"The nominees who failed to win the parliament's approval were the proposed candidates for the ministries of welfare and social security, energy, and education, Fatemeh Ajorlou, Mohammad Aliabadi, and Sousan Keshavarz.

Ajorlou only gained 76 votes, much less than the required 143 votes. Aliabadi fell short of gaining the vote of confidence by six votes, and Keshavarz got the lowest approval with just 49 votes.

The lawmakers approved President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's choice of the following individuals for the leading posts at the country's ministries:

(Candidates: Votes in favor, Votes against, Abstentions)

Minister of Foreign Affairs Manouchehr Mottaki: 173, 79, 34
