Oscars go world wide

Iranian TV carried the Oscar show.  The mullahs thought Michelle Obama's dress was too revealing and had them airbrush on a high necked blouse. 
  The amusing part is that Iran is so hungry for Hollywood fluff from the Great Satan that they are showing the American Oscars.  Presumably it ran with Persian subtitles, but it is hard to imagine getting much enjoyment out of the Oscars if you don't understand English.  And know something about the movies, actors and actresses.  It's like watching football or NASCAR.  You have to be a fan to get much out of it. Sounds like Hollywood still has a lot of fans in Iran.  There is more to being a superpower than nukes and planes and tanks.
