Iran Puts Brakes On Female Racing Champ

Laleh_Seddigh.jpg

One hopes that the babe theory of political movements is still kicking, and that Laleh Seddigh will be in pole position when the revolution hits Iran.

Is she gorgeous or what?

She became Iran's car rally champ, but has now been barred from racing because the idea of a female actually being able to beat men at something as testosterone-driven as auto racing apparently endangers Iranian masculinity. Islam is not the problem here according to Seddigh, because a cleric issued a fatwa stating that there is nothing in Islam preventing a woman from racing against men if Islamic dress code is observed. Well, she looks very well covered up to me.

My advice? Come to America, baby! I don't think we can expect the same state of undress from her as Danica Patrick, but she sure could be a hit.

Thanks to Gateway Pundit, who has a talent for digging up these kinds of stories.

I can't say I agree with your politics but I love your site. Just really visually beautiful as well as containing thoughtful commentary. And a few laughs. Very nice work. Congratulations.

Thanks Steve, that means a lot.

Hope you'll come back often, even if you don't agree with everything you read.

Very babealicious. Hotter than Danica Patrick, even.

Posted by: Will Franklin at October 18, 2006 11:07 AM

I agree, I think she is prettier than Danica. She looks amazingly like Angelina Jolie in some of those pics, actually.
