It seems that Ahmadinejad, the recently "re-elected" President of Iran, claims support among the same demographics as Bush/Republicans - namely the elderly, the rural and the religious - as well as the military. Just thought that was interesting...


"Just as the US presidential campaigns of 2000 and 2004 ranged the rural red states against the urban blue states, so Iran’s red rural districts are lining up behind Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whereas the blue districts with the big cities — Tabriz, Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz — are backing former prime minister Mir Hosain Mousavi."
