I'm not kidding. Insane Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has a blog. Lucky ol' him managed to get his domain name before the link spammers and porn amateurs of Iran scooped it up - at ahmadinejad.ir. He starts every post with, "In the Name of Almighty God-the All-Knowing, the Most Lovingly Compassionate", then launches into a continuing thread about the inept policies of the American government not representing us good ol' American citizens.
While he's known as a stone-faced dictator and a stomper of human rights, his blog comes off in a similar vein as any other amateur blogger; he thanks his readers & commenters and he'll openly talk about not having enough time to blog (due to his busy schedule of proving that the holocaust never happened and denying the existence of gays in Iran). His commenters come from all over the world, and are marked by a little flag representing their home country. Their opinions range from fanatical to racist to critical, and are worth a good read.
From the Washington Post article breaking this story:
"There is a political irony to Mr. Ahmadinejad’s blogging, since other Iranian bloggers, including reporters who worked for news Web sites, came under more pressure after his election. Hundreds of Web sites and blogs that were critical of the government have been blocked. Censorship has been so wide that the president’s blog was once blocked mistakenly along with Google for a day. In fact, blogging has become common among former officials, especially reformist politicians who do not have a platform to express their ideas."Read his blog for yourself, and check out the accompanying W.Post article.
