Remember Egypt?

And how those of us that pointed out that odds favored that whole affair ending up wrong were told it was about democracy? Well, how does this fit with that?

CAIRO - Hundreds of Islamists hurled stones at secular opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei as he went to cast his ballot in a referendum in Egypt’s capital on Saturday, an AFP reporter said. “We don’t want you,” they shouted, forcing the former UN nuclear watchdog chief to retreat to his car and leave, but not before being hit by at least one stone in the back and drenched with water. ElBaradei is widely respected on the world stage for his work as an international diplomat, but under the ousted regime of Hosni Mubarak, he came under repeated criticism for his frequent trips abroad.

Forget the fact that I think ElBaradei is a douchbag of the first order. Or that I have a hearty laugh at the fact these idiots claim he is widely respected on the world stage - respect on the world stage usually equates with anti-US/anti-Israeli sentiments and much love for collectivist idiocy and totalitarian leftist governments which sooner or later end up screwing over their people – in order to elevate the man’s status. Pay attention to the fact that the Egyptian brotherhood has made it clear they want nothing to do with him or secularism.

He was also accused of being out of touch with the reality of Egyptian life.

You have to wonder what that reality is, huh?
