Ahmadinejad in the boys room


Both my wife and mother were quick to weigh in with a big thumbs up for the New Yorker’s Larry Craig-inspired Ahmadinejad-at-Columbia cover.

What strikes me is that the image seems to suggest genuine surprise or confusion on Ahmadinejad’s part when confronted with a real-life example of homosexuality. Compare that approach to the infinitely less nuanced, childish and equally, if not more, funny approach of Saturday Night Live.

In short…

New Yorker: Ahmadinejad has no gay-dar.

SNL: Ahmadinejad needs to come out of the closet.
