This is hilarious- for the most part!
The Iranian government propaganda agency, Fars, has run a story claiming that, according to a new Gallup poll, "the overwhelming majority of rural white Americans said they would rather vote for Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than US President Barack Obama."
Its source? The Onion, an intentially outrageous humor web site "posing" as a news page!
When one follows the link on the Weekly Standard page (or the one in this sentence, for that matter) to the Fars website, the result is the message "Error For Your Request . Not Exist This Story."
The only unfunny part is that some poor Iranian journalist is probably missing an appendage or two by now.
