Them Mooslims ain't getting near me!
King: Obama needs to put his foot down on Muslim Brotherhood
The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said Friday that it’s essential that the U.S. try to prevent the Muslim Brotherhood from having a part in Egypt’s new government.
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said on Fox’s “Hannity” that Washington has six months to work with the military leaders guiding the democratic transition in Egypt. . . As Americans we have a strategic interest in the Middle East. We cannot just sit back and say that the Muslim Brotherhood can work itself in . . . as Americans we cannot take the risk of allowing a group that fraternizes with terrorists who talks radically to have them get any power in the Middle East,” King said.
Okeydokee Pete, let’s go with that. A question: How?
(Maybe by building on our success with Al Qaeda and the Taliban? Oops, they blew up a great big bomb in Kandahar today – Baghdad yesterday).
Pete King is has a bit of a temper and is really really skeered of Mooslims. He says so all the time.

Okay, my head is exploding. I sinned once again by exposing myself to Glenn Beck. It’s kind of an anthropological fascination. People will be writing about this guy for generations – I can see textbooks exploring the crazy. He just said:
“Code Pink is pretty damn cozy with the Muslim Brotherhood.” And Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorn too! (Weathermen from the 1960’s anti war movement). Also ACORN. And The Tides Foundation – all his usual bugaboos. Oh – and Code Pink is under the protection of Hamas, the terrorist! group! (from the democratically elected government of Palestine). All of these groups have some kind of carefully hidden agenda that involves . . . dum de dum dum . . . social justice! and . . . . dum de dum dum . . . ethnic cleansing! Really, ethnic cleansing. I only heard part of it, so I don’t know if he named PBS and Barbra Streisand.
Rupert Murdoch better be making an awful lot of money.

Tomorrow, Egypt may see the biggest street marches yet. No matter the ‘if it bleeds it leads’ footage, there has been remarkably little actual violence (I’m not counting looting etc). New elements have joined the action – prisoners are out on the street (most of them political radicals, which in Egypt meant Islamists) and the Muslim Brotherhood is starting to show its head over the hedge. Combined, they are still a small minority in the country, but are likely to be overrepresented in the crowds.
The police continue to mostly stand back and the Army hasn’t allowed itself to be pulled in so far. But the looting especially is getting out of hand and the police have said they’ll be resuming regular law enforcement duties now but won’t be trying to block the protests.
The country – for all the noise – hasn’t imploded. El Baradai is ready to step in, as is the new VP.
I think Mubarak will leave tomorrow.
