Ahmadinejad Praises Brazil's First Female President

Yesterday, Dilma Rousseff was elected Brazil's first female President. She served as Lula de Silva's chief of staff for five years and was his handpicked successor. In her youth, Rousseff was a Marxist guerrilla.

I don't know if that is what had Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad grinning from ear to ear but when he lavishes praise on a newly elected head of state that can't be good. We need to watch her very, very carefully. The last thing we need is another acolyte of the Ahmadinejad-Chavez axis.

One can only hope that Ahmadinejad has badly misread her. Yet I suspect he has not.
