Mubarak Supports a Democratic Outpouring

Egypt's state-run newspaper Al-Ahram yesterday took the "international community" to task for its cautious response to the Iranian uprising.
"Democratic outpouring?" From a newspaper wholly owned by a man who routinely uses violence against democratic outpourings in his own country and receives nearly nearly 90 percent of the vote--that's so much better than Ahmadinejad's measly 63 percent--when he runs for president?
Hah! That's the most shameless piece of editorializing since the ayatollacracy's apologist-in-chief Roger Cohen had the chutzpah to complain Monday in the New York Times that "Millions of defrauded Iranians are thirsting for a little more" from the United States government than the "off-key" "air of business as usual at the White House."
