Over at TPMCafe, Todd Gitlin linked today to a post at the Internet and Democracy Blog mapping out the support for the two main presidential candidates in the Iranian blogosphere.  And since we’re all whiling away the time waiting for real news now that the polls have closed, I thought I’d share their colorful results with you.  Basically, Mousavi has support from all over the blogosphere, while Ahmadinejad’s support is confined mostly to only the most conservative precincts.  This is presumably good news for Mousavi, as is the high turnout so far, which means that urban voters are probably voting in substantial numbers.

No telling what this means, really, but it’s kind of cool.  Enjoy.
