The video says it all. A young man writing a message to Iran’s President Mahmud Ahmadinejad on a wall. “Mr. Potato, make everyone happy and say goodbye.”
The video is reportedly from the November 4 protest in Tehran when thousands of members of the Green opposition returned to the streets and demonstrated against Ahmadinejad.
Ahmadinejad has been accused of distributing free potatoes ahead of the disputed June 12 election in order to get votes.
And opposition demonstrators regularly chant, “We don’t want a potato government.”
