You really can find absolutely anything on the Web. Anything. For instance, an entry entitled “Why I Have a Little Crush on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad” . The writer, Sally Kohn, begins:

I know I’m a Jewish lesbian and he’d probably have me killed. But still, the guy speaks some blunt truths about the Bush Administration that make me swoon. Okay, I admit it. Part of it is that he just looks cuddly. Possibly cuddly enough to turn me straight. I think he kind of looks like Kermit the Frog. Sort of. With smaller eyes. But that’s not all…
I want to be very clear. There are certainly many things about Ahmadinejad that I abhor — locking up dissidents, executing of gay folks, denying the fact of the Holocaust, potentially adding another dangerous nuclear power to the world and, in general, stifling democracy. Even still, I can’t help but be turned on by his frank rhetoric calling out the horrors of the Bush Administration and, for that matter, generations of US foreign policy preceding.

It is a stunning entry and one written with part of her tongue in her cheek. But only part.
At the end she sides with the questions Ahmadinejad asked Bush in a May 2006 letter about peace and Jesus and American foreign policy an poverty.
