The "If you believe this, you'll believe anything" item for today.

This absolutely has to be one of those "if you believe this, you'll believe anything" moments. According to The Times of Israel, "The [new] Iranian president also presented his new 11 member Cabinet, consisting of relative moderates and reform-minded, Western educated technocrats." These include " Elham Aminzadeh [who gained her degree at Glasgow University], a law and public policy professor at Tehran University, as Vice-President of Legal Affairs, effectively making her the first woman in the Islamic Republic’s history to hold the influential position."

This new cabinet is supposedly the most moderate ever under the current constitution and current Islamist regime. Of course, all appointments still have to approved by the Iranian Parliament, and this means, as we all know, therefore, by the Supreme Leader a certain Ayatollah Khameini.

What do you reckon the odds are on that happening? Just re-read the heading to this piece, he said cynically.

I have a bridge to sell you. It's an antique, in good condition and you pay shipping and handling. Best offer.
