    It doesn't matter.  What's going on in the streets of Iran is FAR bigger than the election.  Whether Ahmadinejad actually won by that much or not (I tend to believe not, bogus polls notwithstanding [you think they have their own SUSA polling outfits and Rasmussen and whatnot?  Polling in Iran is not to be trusted, period.]) it doesn't matter.  The people are out in the streets and the government is being forced to open up.  No one, no one at all, should give a damn about the election results in reality right now.  They are immaterial in a revolution.
