U.N. Elects Iran to Commission on Women's Rights
http://www.foxnews.com/wo...ns-rights/

This is almost as amusing as their placing of China, Bahrain, Egypt, Cuba & Qatar (among others) on the "Human Rights Council".

And people wonder why they have the nickname the "Useless Nations".

In case you need help in finding hijabs, here's a good place to start:

Kyle - you don't think this might be used by the U.N. as an opportunity to show Iran how things are done in the civilized world?

Like or dislike the U.N. as you will, but they're not that blatantly stupid. Give them a little credit.

Do you think Fox News intended it to be funny, or do you think they ran that story the way they did in an attempt to portray the U.N. in a negative light? After all, the U.N. is not terribly popular with Fox viewers.

Who knows, maybe Iran will take something away from this experience and start treating women the way they do in, let's say, Utah. It's a small step, but a step nonetheless.

The UN doesn't need the help of FoxNews to do that Brian. They've been managing pretty well on their own for the last 65 years

maybe Iran will take something away from this experience


Like how to more efficiently & humanely stone women?

Not sure why Wendy would choose to live in a state so terrible as the way you make Utah sound.

Of course, that might go a long way to explain why she has to take to the web in order to take out her grammatical frustration on conservative white dudes.

This must be where she goes to get away from it all.

She doesn't single out the political persuasion of the people she chooses to correct...Perhaps the conservatives aren't as bright as the liberals...

Given what a hidebound traditionalist Kyle is, I'm sure that if his name was "Al-Varnelli" and his flag icon had a crescent in it, he'd be the first one calling for mandatory donning of the hijab.
