TEHRAN, Iran — Iran has blocked access to Facebook, prompting government critics on Sunday to condemn the move as an attempt to muzzle the opposition ahead of next month’s presidential election.

Blogs and Web sites such as Facebook have become an important campaign tool for the leading reformist candidate, Mir Hossein Mousavi, to mobilize Iran’s critical youth vote before the June 12 balloting.

I was totally about to vote for this dude.  He’s environmentally conscious (why else is he obsessed with nukes?), religiously tolerant (if you have the correct religion), and most importantly, he has crazy eyes.  But shit necro, if you is tryin to fuck wit my facebook that aint right.  How my gonna poke my showties now?!  Total dick move.
