U.S. On Egypt: Pretending It Doesn't Know How Democracies Are Made

"This is really a farce. I mean, people here could be poor, but they're intelligent.
Egypt's people are only poor? Lame. Americans are multi-taskers. Not only are we getting poorer, we also manage to be aggressively unintelligent and fat at the same time. A "triple threat!" If the American public was told a dictator who has been in power for 30 years will be the one to implement democracy, it would believe it. Because it is an advanced society. Because brain cells used for critical thinking on such matters are better used accumulating plot details from The Biggest Loser. [NYP]
