Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak To Step Down (Update: Scratch That)

Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s embroiled president, will leave office. Vice President Omar Suleiman will take over, reports NBC. UPDATE: In a televised address, Mubarak says that while he will delegate responsibilities to Suleiman, he will not be relinquishing power. So there’s that.

      The 82 year old military dictator sock-puppet will step down in favor of a younger military dictator sock-puppet. As for those “free democratic elections” the people of Egypt are demanding? Don’t hold your breath waiting for that.

      “I actually blame [Egypt's popular civil uprising on] certain friendly nations who have television channels — they’re not friendly at all — who have intensified the youth against the nation and the state. They have filled in the minds of the youth with wrongdoings, with allegations, and this is unacceptable. They should have never done that. They should have never sent this enemy spirit.”
      – Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman [http://edition.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/meast/02/04/egypt.journalist.attacks/]

      Suleiman sounds like just the kind of responsible, introspective reformer the protestors are demanding, no?

      Yet another shining example Mubarak’s political savvy.
