Iranian Anti-Semite In the White House: A Low Moment in American History

At this point in his waning Presidency, you might expect President Bush to revert back to the jester we met in 2000: gettin' folksy with the White House Press Corps, enjoying the warmer weather at his Texas Ranch, coughing up pretzels during the Dolphins game. That is, if it weren't for a mounting crisis consuming the Greater Middle East. Instead, the President of the United States finds himself forced to cozy up to a close friend of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Abdul Aziz Al-Hakim, another internationally renowned anti-Zionist and Holocaust denier. (And all this — Al-Hakim's Oval Office photo-ops, his visit to Wolf Blitzer's Situation Room — While David Duke was a featured speaker at a Holocaust-Never-Happened convention in Tehran.)

Has it ever been more embarrassing to be an American? Check out this weeks' Low Post for Matt Taibbi's take on a low, low moment in U.S. history.
