A week with Ahmadinejad

Apparently we're sentenced to bear with a week of Ahmadinejad on US media. Last night, I watched his interview on 60 minutes and I couldn't take it for more than 15 minutes. Stupid questions from the anchor were followed with stupid answers by Ahmadinejad which even sounded more stupid with the terrible real-time translation. As far as I have heard, Iranian government has made it a requirement that any interview with Iranian officials should be translated by someone from Iran's side. And considering the typical chaotic and non-expert management of the Iranian government, very poor translators end up doing such a critical task.

Anyway, we're gonna have total treat with Ahmadinejad this week and the best thing to do is to totally ignore it. He doesn't have anything new to say except his cheap BS and on the other side US media doesn't have any new analysis except repeating the same rhetoric of war on terror, support for Israel, etc. It's such a shame that the whole political discourse of the world is dominated by this much of distortion and lies from all sides.
