    Iranian politician Nina Siakhali Moradi epitomized the promise of more civil rights for the country’s women when she won her bid as an alternate to the Qazvin city council earlier this summer. But now she’s had her election overturned by religious conservatives, who have basically barred her from office for being too hot.

    “We don't want a catwalk model on the council,” balked an unnamed senior official in Qazvin, according to a report in the Times of London.

    But the official reason, as explained to the news agency IranWire by Seyed Reza Hossaini, Qazvin’s representative in Parliament and a review board member, was that, “Her votes have been nullified due to her disqualification, as the review board did not approve her credentials. We have told her the reason why she has been disqualified.”

    Still, Iran’s judiciary and intelligence services had originally granted approval (as is the system) to Moradi’s candidacy in Qazvin, the ancient capital of the Persian empire, about 100 miles from Tehran. The 27-year-old architecture grad student ran under the slogan “Young ideas for a young future,” and was committed to fighting for improved rights of both women and youth.

    How can you call me sexist I voted for Hillery and if she runs again I will vote for her . Even the women are belligerent, Indira Gandy , took Goa from the Portuguese, Golda Mayer fought the Arabs , Thatcher fought the Argentinian, Eva Peron was a nice lady. I somehow think women in politics will not be as crooked as men.

    I would vote for Hillery too.
    She's getting a bit craggy, but she's still got good legs.
    I'd prefer her to be President than her daughter any day. What a moose!

    Gandy was no looker,
    but I'd give her one.
    One vote I mean. Oh Come on, what did you think I meant?

    Golda Meyer, no thanks.
    I'm not into that granny stuff.

    Thatcher. Lips like Marilyn Monroe and eyes like Caligula.
    What a dominatrix. Hit me with your handbag, Maggie.

    Eva Peron.
    Wa Wa Wey Wa!
    Now you are talking cutie.
    mmmh.......maybe I'm thinking of Madonna.
