Thanks Ms. Telnaes. I'm skipping the news, hence forth, and just checking in with you for an update on what is and what is not going on in the world. One is more funny than the next and each is apropos.

You nailed it again Ann, Thanks! Your portrayal of Mubarak, Gibbs and Obama is absolutely spot on and it really made me laugh......a rarity these days! I too am glad that McCain and that dumb woman who ran as his running mate (I took the pledge not to mention her name again) are not in the White House. They would probably invade Iran!

Succinct! Thanks again.

Makes me think of the old song, "You Made Me What I Am Today" ... except WE made the Shah, Saddam and Mubarak, and other tyrants.

I Hope the Egyptian people prevail!

Can't resist adding that I'm glad that McCain and Palin aren't in the White House right now. Although she could probably see Egypt from atop the Washington Monument. You betcha!

As I said in a previous comment, Mubarak is stalling for time in hopes of wearing down the opposition while his "thugs" do his dirty work. Unfortunatly the US is caught in a tenious position. This is not an enviable. Choices will have to be made and the best choice is to do what is right not what is politically, economically or militarily necessary.

First, I think jornolibist is spot on.

Second, I think Hosni's saying he would depart in September is a stalling tactic to give him time to gather up his troops and find a way to put down this rebellion.

Third, your cartoon made me laugh out loud (as sad as it is), because it so succinctly captured the situation.

Fibs will be out of his job before Hos is.
