Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who charmingly once declared that Iran is free of gays, must be fixing to make sure it's free of hackers, as well. Gawker reports that the Iranian prez's website, which is currently down, was hacked by someone who posted a message asking God if he might take Mahmoud home in 2010. The full post:

"Dear God, In 2009 you took my favorite singer—Michael Jackson, my favorite actress—Farrah Fawcett, my favorite actor—Patrick Swayze, my favorite voice—Neda.
Please, please, don't forget my favorite politician—Ahmadinejad and my favorite dictator—Khamenei, in the year 2010. Thank you." (More Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stories.)
