Candidates with Funny Names

Pandemonium has erupted in Iran following that nation's presidential election. The final results were very tight, and both candidates are claiming victory. Incumbent president Mahmoud Ahmasomethingoranother has a slight edge in the numbers but his challenger, Mir-Hossein Mousav, whose middle name is--GASP--darn close to being Hussein, is claiming extensive voter fraud. The end result is that protests and even riots have broken out in the streets. Things have gotten so bad, in fact, that you'd think Iran just switched to DTV.

The final outcome, as always, depends on a recount in Florida.
