Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his water at the podium.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad showed up at the Iranian Parliament today.
Kamangir explained the giddy reaction by the Parliamentarians to this festive occasion:
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.
