Didn't see any zolf in the audience except on the non-kachal males. Closet gay.

So sad...

You would think he could be the right man for the job, as he is such an expert in @$#-e-sher. Unfortunately, he recites the beautiful Persian poetry without proper timing, emotion, or wisdom. I'm sure the poor poets are turning in their graves, listening to Mahmoud abuse what they wrote so beautifully and artistically.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a complete fraud in every single thing he tackles.

Hamin yeh honar o kam daasht! Soon he'll be doing surrealist portraits of Emam Zaman. Then acting in a Kiarostami movie (which will be banned). Then he's going to become Iran's first astronaut. I can't wait for this last one.
