And your point is?

I'm still trying to figure out the point of this editorial, on the Fox News site, of all places:

FOXNews.com - Ahmadinejad and Bush: The Nuclear Shadowboxers - Iran

The author, John Moody, draws all these "parallels" between Bush and Ahmadinejad -- like they both talk about "God" a lot. I don't know if he's trying for some sort of moral equivalency, but this quote is telling:

"In the U.S. and much of Europe — in short, the traditional center of the Christian world — Ahmadinejad comes across as an out-of-control anti-Semite who wants Israel destroyed and who would risk his country’s survival on a gamble that the world will not and cannot stop him from producing a nuclear weapons arsenal."

Cough ... sputter ... excuse me? Comes across as? That's like saying Al-Zarqawi came across as a homicidal maniac.
