EVEN THE UR WAITED UNTIL HE WAS IN OFFICE TO IMPLODE:

Ahmadinejad struggles with crisis of authority: Disarray in Iran intensifying (Barbara Slavin, July 28, 2009, Washington Times)

Iran's government appears to be imploding even before President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is sworn in for a second term, with three Cabinet ministers dismissed, resigning or on their way out and the opposition vowing to continue protests over disputed presidential elections.

Iran specialists say Mr. Ahmadinejad -- who has alienated some hard-liners as well as reformists in Iran through poor economic management and an adventurist foreign policy -- is badly weakened as he heads into a second term and may not be able to complete another four years in office.
