So Egypt threw their dictator out, apparently in favor of a real democracy. I would have thought that this would be considered awesome, given how Faux News was all for bombing Iraq into the stone age in the name of "democracy" (after the WMD and Al Qaeda excuses died, that is). But no.

While I find it genuinely frightening that anyone watching Faux News might actually accept this 180-degree-turn on something so basic like the right of people to decide on their own government, the real threat is how American religious extremists like Glenn Beck are transforming it into some kind of highway-to-the-end-times narrative.

It boggles my mind how completely broken someone's brain would have to be to not see how completely self-contradictory all this is.
