I'm not kidding. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading this man, here is the link to the article I read today that has just blown my mind.
Not only does he call Ahmadinejad Teh Evil, but he compares himself to Daniel Pearl, and spells Pearl's name wrong. Yes, in this stunning peice of crap, Richard Simon states that the Iranians want to behead him. I'm not even kidding you. This guy is a craptacular washed up screen writer, and he actually thinks that what he says matters one wit to the president of another country.
Of course Simon also doesn't understand that Ahmadinejad is the figurehead for the theocracy that actually rules Iran. He apparently also doesn't understand that talking to the Iranians is the best way to go about things. You know, instead of bombing them into the stone age.
Now, is Ahmadinejad evil? Oh I don't know, do you think I've met the guy? He seems to be insane. I don't like to call people evil, it's way too strong a word. However the fact that Simon thinks he's Teh Evil has converted him to Christianity. Or something. I'm honestly not sure, because the guy is writing like he's still high on Ambien.
What's kind of freaky is that there are people out there who think this guy makes perfect sense.
