Unrest in Egypt:It’s all About Donoughts

As the world watches the unrest in Cairo, I called my good freind Hosni Mubarak and asked him what the unrest was all about.

“Gary” he said, shouting over a very bad Skype connection, “it’s all about donoughts!”

“Donoughts Hosni? We are hearing that it is because you are a heavy handed leader!”

“No,no that is lie! I treat people like I treat my women. People here want donoughts like big fat rich Americans.”

I pressed the issue of being a heavy handed dictator, but he said it was all Western lies. “People do not want tourist monies. They want Krispy Creme franchises and more McDonalds.”

The White House remains tight lipped about the unrest and specifically, on Mubarak’s future as leader one of the worlds oldest nations. Sen. Joe Biden did say on if he would characterize Mubarak as a dictator, Biden responded: “Mubarak has been an ally of ours in a number of things. And he’s been very responsible on, relative to geopolitical interest in the region, the Middle East peace efforts; the actions Egypt has taken relative to normalizing relationship with – with Israel. … I would not refer to him as a dictator.”

Good to know Joe, good to know.
