And in a crazy shock, the conservatives in Iran seem to be winning!

Channelnewsasia.com: "Religious conservatives in Iran have taken an early lead in elections for the 290-seat parliament, official sources said after the the first 50 results from Friday's polls were announced by state radio"

That's hard to believe. I mean, the reformers were not allowed to participate and they lost!

Of course the conserviteves had the best campaign slogan:
"Senior figures in the regime campaigned against a call by prominent outgoing reformers for a boycott, playing on nationalist and Islamic sentiment by calling each ballot cast a "bullet into the heart" of US President George W. Bush"
