The Rovian Islamist  —  Ahmadinejad's bag of tricks is eerily like that of Karl Rove - the constant use of fear, the exploitation of religion, the demonization of liberals, the deployment of Potemkin symbolism like Sarah Palin: … Think of this regime as Cheney and Rove in a police state setting, and you see what's been going on.

CNN producer: Iranian students say they're doomed if Obama accepts the Iranian election  —  Much depends on the meaning of “accepts,” though, doesn't it?  I'm sure we'll get some patented Hopenchange drivel tomorrow about “grave concerns,” etc, but if Iran's kids are expecting The One to walk away …
Allahpundit / Hot Air:
Video: Iranian thugs beat protester to death in broad daylight  —  There's no official confirmation that he died but that's the word on the street.  Best-case scenario is that they “merely” beat him into unconsciousness.  Rather than give you just the video of the beating, though …
