Liberating Egypt over Hosni Mubarak’s dead body, if they must

Besieged Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak refuses to step down. He told the 2 1/2 million strong demonstration in Tahrir Square that he intends to die in Egypt. If the protesters likewise promised to accede only over their dead bodies, I'm certain the Western press would report it as a provocation and in the interest of stability Mubarak would dutifully comply. So what's a peaceful flash-mob to do? The spontaneously united Egyptian public may not see themselves as revolutionary avengers, but Mubarak seems resolved to play the doomed despot. First the shameful digital blackout, then unleashing his plain-clothed thugs --not counting his 30-year reign of torture and corruption-- the more than a hundred peaceful petitioners killed outright this past week may already warrant calls for his head. 22587

Richard Cheneys Pacemaker, in a bid to save all mankind…

Attempted to quit today. He's in the hospital. I know, I know, morgue would be better, but that'll happen eventually. According to a legend which I just made up on the spot, he actually had been taken to the morgue quite a few times over his Misspent Voyage in this Vale of Tears. He couldn't talk his way out of it, people wouldn't believe him when he said he was still alive. So he hired a doctor and attorney to accompany him everywhere, bars, whorehouses, opium dens, Baby-eating parties... and convince people that he was still alive. 14925
