Iran Space Program Plans a Progression of Animal Astronauts: Worms, Turtle, Mouse, Monkey, Ahmadinejad

Actually they've sent up the worms to the monkey up (at least to the edges of space, and, frankly, according to them).

Now Our Hero Ahmadinejad says put me in coach.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Monday that he's ready to take the risk of being the first Iranian astronaut sent into space as part of Iran's goal of a manned space flight.

"I'm ready to be the first Iranian to sacrifice myself for our country's scientists," the official IRNA news agency quoted him as saying in an address to space scientists in Tehran.

The Israeli Missile Command expressed interest in such a plan.

I kind of used to laugh at these tinpot tyrants who postured as Action Heroes -- Kim Il Jong with his myriad of world records in sports (he shot a 36 in golf, you know, in a round which I believe included four (four!) holes in one), Putin with his Action Judo and his bear hunting. And before them, Mussolini, strong on his horse, wearing out a horse on each morning's ride (and wearing out a woman on each night's ride).

I am proud of America, and proud to be an American, because we are not, as so much of the world is, psychologically arrested in early childhood, easily manipulated by cheap would-be tyrants posturing as Men of the People and making all sorts of ridiculous claims about their prowess at, and interest in, manful sports.

It's just so absurd, these petty despots of benighted lands pretending to be accomplished sportsmen in sports in which they plainly have neither interest nor skill. What kind of degraded populace could be swayed by such ridiculousness?

Thank God It Can't Happen Here.

In completely unrelated news...

White House defends release of Calamity Barry photo.

The White House was still answering for "skeet-gate" Monday following a photo released late Friday of President Barack Obama shooting skeet in August 2012.

"Why did the White House decide to release the skeet shooting photos three days before this trip?" a reporter asked White House press secretary Jay Carney during Monday's briefing aboard Air Force One. The president was en route to Minnesota, where he's delivering remarks on gun violence.
