The Most Popular "Isolated" Guy in the World

Mark Steyn, in conversation with Hugh Hewitt, reacts to Obama's namby-pamby promise to "make sure that Iran is further and further isolated and pays a price for this kind of behavior":
HH: Mark Steyn, we’ve taken more direct action against the Mexican government via Fast & Furious than the President is threatening Iran with.

MS: (laughing) Yeah, I know. And to further increase Iran’s isolation? Iran last year got elected to head of the U.N. committee on women’s rights.

HH: Yes.

MS: …on whatever it is…a woman’s place in Iran is under a pile of stones. And that’s the guy, Iran is so isolated that they put Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the chair of that U.N. committee. Two key American allies, Turkey and Brazil, who were assiduously courted by Obama, both were photographed high fiving with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. If that guy were any more socially isolated, he might have the occasional night at home in his yearbook planner to stay in the presidential palace and wash his hair, which needs badly washing, according to what they say about him on the street of Tehran. But this doesn’t even pass muster as bland pap.
He's the belle of the ball, the life of the party, the most popular "isolated" bloke around
