Mahmoud: Dude, I got screwed!

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images  67 214351075 B150F81942 MMahmoud Ahmadinejad's camp is is now blaming the interpreter at the Columbia University event for misquoting the Iranian president on the whole "there are no gays in Iran" thing. Instead, Ahmadinejad's press secretary tells Reuters what Mah-Ahm really said was that "compared to American society, we don't have many homosexuals":

President misquoted over gays in Iran: aide [Reuters]

Hmm..."don't have many homosexuals," "don't have any homosexuals." Can't we just call the whole thing absurd?

Although we do hear Larry Craig's ears pricked up when he heard the excuse. In fact, the GOP senator is said to be so emboldened by the strategy that he will soon claim that while visiting that infamous bathroom stall a few months back, his foot did not say "tap,tap---tap--tap, tap, tap," which means "please give me a BJ," but rather "tap,tap---tap, tap--tap, tap, tap---tap," which means, "those loafers you are wearing are exquisite -- what are they, Prada?" It's a popular mistranslation, apparently.
