Quote From Iran: Ahmadinejad Called Us Dust, We Showed Him a Sandstorm.

I haven't had much sleep. Been glued to Twitter, watching the Iran revolution unfold. You can watch history in the making too.

Brilliant quote in my post title comes from an anonymous person in Iran.

Another brilliant quote came from Mousavi as he addressed the throng: "these masses were not brought by bus or by threat. they were not brought for potatoes.they came themselves". Potatoes is a reference to how Ahmadinejad bribed people in the villages with potatoes during his campaign. The first part of the quote refers to rumors that the crowd of admirers at Ahmadinejad's speech were bussed in from outside Tehran, or were threatened or paid to be there cheering.
