Now Is The Time

The president spoke on Egypt today. His speech was short and easy to digest. I think his most substantial point was that the privileged people who serve in positions of political power do so at the will of the people, and therefore, the Egyptian people have every right to change their government. He commended the protesters and the Egyptian military for their professionalism. He said we're committed to a partnership between the United States and Egypt.

Oh, and he said the orderly transition must begin now.

Except Egyptian President Mubarak only said he will not seek another term -- he still refuses to step down or lift the emergency law.

I never really understood people who stick around where they're not welcome.

Anyway, John Bolton (remember him?) was singing McCain's old tune to bomb Iran. It really does sound like a broken record now.

Oh, and somebody at Fox News is having trouble finding Egypt on the map.

I have an idea. Let's not bomb anybody until we all master geography.
