Pay No Attention to the Iranian Cleric Behind the Wall of Contradictions

Andrew Sullivan writes:

Many of us feel numb after the last few weeks of anticipation, euphoria and horror. And it will take time to absorb and plumb what really went on, what will happen next and how all these things will change our world. But it seems totally clear to me that the curtain has been pulled from the Islamist Wizard. Theocratic regimes require some base level of reverence, and watching the old Supreme Leader lose it at Friday prayers a week ago, and the bare-faced martial law that has been effectively imposed since, you realize that the mystique has gone for ever. In fact, the whole notion of a democratic Islamist state just hit a wall of contradictions.
