Friends In Low Places

The good news is that the governments of the United States and Iran are cooperating on an international issue.

The bad news? The issue where the Bush administration and the Islamist regime in Iran are finding common ground is unfortunately not nuclear proliferation, the Arab-Israeli conflict, international terrorism, rebuilding Iraq, or rebuilding Afghanistan. What was the issue of agreement? None other than anti-gay bias. (For added bonus points, the regime in Sudan is also involved.)

Another sad aspect of all this is that this the United States gets no credit from Osama bin Laden for standing with the most backward of the Islamic theocracies in international bodies when it comes to gay rights and women's rights. I guess there's just no pleasing some people. Geez...
