Poosteh kharbozeh

The maximum leader, the exalted Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, daaamat barakaatoh, finally documented what he has been saying and doing all along, namely that he knows better than the rest of the nation ["No brainer"].

The Leader's short and not too sweet letter to the Islamic Consultative Congress (one should not attach any meaning to the name of this body) was reminiscent of his predecessor's dogged beliefs in righteousness of his actions. Albeit the poetry published posthumously and attributed to him testifies to his remorse for wayward behavior.

Iranian history is chuck full of these kind of leaders who at the pinnacle of their power lose sight of the uncompromising judgment of history. The aphrodisiac of power has such an intoxicating effect on them that only the sound of Gabrielle' bugle brings back some belated semblance of sobriety and a smidgen of sanity.

The pundits and other talking heads have been proclaiming Mr. Bahramani -- aka Hojat Ol Islam, and, as of late Ayatollah Rafsanjani -- as the puppet master while over looking the real culprit.

The old adage, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, has been identified by the ultimate forensic scientist of them all, history, as the supplier of the proverbial poosteh kharboozeh.
