The Holy Spit of Ahmadinejad....

File this one under "I kid you not". From Kamangir: Ahmadinejad's holy saliva.

Today, Ahmadinejad went to the parliament to present the budget for the next year (the Persian new year is approaching). This was the first time many MPs saw him since his return from the Hajj pilgrimage. Aftab continues [Persian],:

A large group of MPs were lined up in order to greet him. Some of the MPs who had not seen him since his return would touch his cloths [because they considered them blessed]. One MP went as far as drinking the remaining water in a glass Ahmadinejad had used. He then splashed the water on his clothes.
