At least cartoonists are happy to see Ahmadinejad the president
An unwritten law had long prevented Iranian cartoonists from drawing caricatures of the clerics, including Iranian presidents so far.
But Ahmadinejad, who is the first non-cleric president of Iran after over twenty years, is the best thing that could happen to Iranian cartoonists.
Now, Gol Agha, the best-known satire magazine, founded by "Kiumars Saberi ":http://www.payvand.com/news/04/may/1005.html during the first term of Rafsanjani in early 90s, has Ahmadinejad on its cover.
Under Rafsanjani, because he was a cleric, Gol Agha always drew Hassan Habibi, his deputy as a substitute for Rafsanjani himself.
