Quick Shots: Iran's Sham Election

Adam at SophistPundit alerted me to this very disturbing post at Publius Pundit (disturbing, but not surprising in the least) regarding a visit he made to an Iranian polling station, full of vitriolic propaganda of the worst sort. Whatever this election was, it wasn't democracy...

With all the miles of ink spilled on the worthless Senator Dick Durbin, leave it to Mark Steyn to write the best of all:
One measure of a civilized society is that words mean something: "Soviet" and "Nazi" and "Pol Pot" cannot equate to Guantanamo unless you've become utterly unmoored from reality. Spot the odd one out: 1) mass starvation; 2) gas chambers; 3) mountains of skulls; 4) lousy infidel pop music turned up to full volume. One of these is not the same as the others, and Durbin doesn't have the excuse that he's some airhead celeb or an Ivy League professor. He's the second-ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Don't they have an insanity clause?
Frank Rich's latest substitute for kitty litter is up, and guess what? It's about fake news...holy crap, what a shocker! Rich hasn't written an original column in, what, 20 weeks now? Like his colleague MoDO, he keeps harping on the only tune he knows, this time ludicrously trying to tie in Tom Cruise and War of the Worlds. Rich also manages to throw in a reference to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. I'm not joking. Can anyone say, 'Hack?'...
