It’s easy to get fooled by the Onion News Network, just ask Congress.

The Onion’s original article is liberally quoted in the Iranian report, including this zinger from an alleged West Virginia voter: “[Ahmadinejad] takes national defense seriously, and he’d never let some gay protesters tell him how to run his country like Obama does.”
Business Insider provides a screenshot of the FNA article.
