No Big Deal
Big Pharaoh got way too excited over a criticism of Mubarak's regime on the Egyptian-run state television, but he wonders if it's all just decor for the elections. I have to say that it is, because the criticism was levelled against the Finance Minister and not against the president. Plus, what's one criticism against the all the praise he gets on those channels anyway? The article that mentions the incident mentions a couple of other things that I find interesting: For example, it mentions the super efforts done by Mr. Momtaz El Qut, whom I gave examples of his superior ass-kissing skills over here. The article, however, mentions direct quotes from an editorial the man wrote himself, which...ehh.. how about your just read it and judge for yourselves? "You and me eat whatever we want, but the president doesn't," al-Qut wrote. "He might be the only Egyptian who never ate stuffed cabbage, eggplant or green pepper. He might be the only Egyptian who didn't smell the cooking of molokhiya" — a traditional Egyptian dish. Oh baby. My heart is broken. He can't smell molokhiya, he can't eat stuffed cabbage. Poor Hosny! This whole thing is a goddamn circus!
