Who is the winner of the Iranian election? That would be President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as announced by state-run media in Iran as if we didn’t know it already. The Iranian vote count is in while the first to lend credibility to the manipulated Iranian election results was Barack Obama himself.

Ahmadinejad Wins Iranian Election

Although the Iranian election commanded worldwide interest, nobody really expected the hard-line state candidate to lose. The guy wins who Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei and the religious council wants to win. Amazingly everyone seems to know that except for our own young president.

And yet Barack Obama announced that he was looking forward to the results as if closely monitoring Fidel Castro’s latest rigged election achievement in a totalitarian state. Obama issued a statement saying he is “excited to see what appears to be a robust debate taking place in Iran.” Go figure.

According to the State of Iran as reported by state media IRNA, what was by all accounts a hotly contested election campaign resulted in President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad winning with a commanding 68% of the vote over challenger Mirhossein Mousavi who had barely 30% officially. Who knew? Judging by the street demonstrations we have to say that mathematics is no longer the strong point in ancient Iran.

Mousavi is claiming the usual sort of voting irregularities that candidates do in the United States, which are both underwhelming and missing the point. In fact he is claiming victory himself. He had no chance no matter how many people voted for him. Barack Obama knows that and chose via his statement to lend U.S. democratic legitimacy to the Ahmadinejad win despite the farcical vote count and disputed Iranian election results.
