Ah, yes, what a jolly good fellow

Talking airhead, Piers Morgan, on Ahmadinejad: "He's a surprising character. He's unpredictable. I don't think he's mad in the way that many in the west perhaps prefer to see him. He's certainly a caricature figure when he comes to America. I didn't get a sense of a crazy madman. He is at times charming and sinister and contradictory and unpredictable, and occasionally he says stuff you find yourself nodding in agreement."

Charming as well as sinister? I know it sounds fantastic, but, somehow, it seems that Piers Morgan can't tell the difference between Ahmadinejad and the late George Sanders...

Here's a tip, Piers: did your guest smell like a flatulent polecat? Ok, then, thaaaat's Ahmadinejad.

Update: The New York Post is obviously a surer guide than Piers Morgan (H/T: Jeff).

Well, someone in New York sees "I'm A Dinner Jacket" for what he really is.

Here's a tip for Dufus Morgan: Hitler was a very charming person, too. He liked dogs, and he had tea with his secretaries every afternoon.
