    Iranians just hate him. He's an embarassment.

    An Iranian political cartoon a few years ago approached it in the following way: it had a close up of Ahmadinejad's hair where he had divided the female lice and the male lice to different sides of his head. The lice were saying something ironic to each other (can't remember what it was). Of course, this makes fun of him and his social policy on multiple levels, not the least of which that telling sometbody they have lice is a pretty big insult in the culture (or so my mom tells me).

    I'd post a link, but I don't know where it is, and it's probably in Farsi and the newspaper was probably shut down, anyway (probably only to reopen the next day under a different name, but that is another story).
