Iranian Vice Presidential Pick --- REJECTED

For those that think Iran is a country filled unicorn riding, rainbow watching, misunderstood petulant children this should remove all doubt, as if beating women in public for inappropriate dress, hanging gays and murdering protesters wasn't enough evidence.

Ahmadinnerjackets recent pick to be vice president, which involved a heavy dose of nepotism, has been rejected by the real guy in charge, Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

What did he find objectionable in this choice? This.
Mashai angered hard-liners in 2008 when he said Iranians were "friends of all people in the world - even Israelis."

That little part about Israel didn't sit too well with the hard liners who hold power in Iran and pull Ahmadinejaid's strings.

Meanwhile I am sure the Obama administration will continue to seek out a chance to sit down with these folks, since they have unclenched their fist and all.
