Okay, Maybe THIS is the Worst Endorsement Ever

Even with Marion "Pat" Robertson's puzzling endorsement of George W. Bush, the endorsement of W by Iran (charter member of the Axis of Evil) probably wins as the worst presidential endorsement. Yesterday, the head of Iran's security council said that the re-election of President Bush was in Tehran's best interests. "We should not forget that most sanctions and economic pressures were imposed on Iran during the time of [former Democratic U.S. President Bill] Clinton," said Hasan Rowhani, head of the Supreme National Security Council. "And we should not forget that during Bush's era -- despite his hard-line and baseless rhetoric against Iran -- he didn't take, in practical terms, any dangerous action against Iran."

In light of this, CNB wonders if this is why Cheney strongly implied (CNB is feeling generous) that the the endorsement of Kerry gave the U.S. a stronger likelihood of suffering a terrorist attack. Deep down, maybe he knew that Iran liked his boss better. Is that good?
