Iranian TV Goes Ga-Ga over Obama and Biden

Excerpted from World Net Daily:

Sen. John McCain is "absentminded" and "terrible" and his running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin, doesn't have any appropriate experience.

Sen. Barack Obama, by contrast, is "highly educated" and "eloquent" and would serve the world much better and improve America's overall situation.

And Sen. Joe Biden is a "very respectable" man with a "good reputation."

All this according to an interview broadcast this week on Iranian state-run media.

"[McCain] doesn't know anything, poor thing. He is terrible. Let me tell you, he's awful," stated Mohammad-Ali Fardanesh, a political science professor at Shahid Behshti University, which is an Iranian state-funded school.

Fardanesh was speaking Tuesday on the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting television network in an interview translated today by the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI....

"McCain not only has no experience, but doesn't even know where 'abroad' is. The poor guy is very absentminded," said Fardanesh....

Fardanesh then lavished praise on Obama...

"The flaw they see in Mr. Obama – which they don't admit – is that he is highly educated and very eloquent. What does he speak so eloquently for?! Mr. McCain, who considers himself such an expert in international politics, still says 'Czechoslovakia.'"...

Asked about Biden, Fardanesh called him "a very respectable man. He has a good reputation, and he is respectable and healthy. He has been in the Senate for 36 years, since he was 29. They are more knowledgeable in foreign affairs." - Read in full
