We could be best friends.
This is my third post about the Iranian election, and the second to involve that cousin. This time, because she alerted me to the existence of a recent Facebook post by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei (by way of Yair Rosenberg, for Tablet):
This caricature is outrageous! The idea that just three people could determine the outcome of an American election is preposterous. We saw in 2000 that it takes at least five.
Other than that slight inaccuracy, the left side looks about right, so I want to briefly draw your attention to the right. Just as I suspected, it’s easy to see that one single individual (the one inside a red circle) is empowered to choose the President of Iran. Thank you, Ayatollah, for confirming my suspicions publicly on Facebook.
(The Ayatollah decided the Iranian election all by himself in a pure democratic process, is what I’m saying.)
