Opposition groups in Egypt have called for mass protests on Friday against President Mohammed Mursi's decree that gives him sweeping powers.
Yes, he went out and got one of those high-tech gizmos that have attachments that can reach just about everywhere in the country, especially the one where Mursi can show no mercy to the Mubarak hold-overs and play Double Jeopardy; "I'll take Retrials of the Century for 1600, Alex."
This isn't looking too good, for Merci is looking more and more like a classic African Big Man; one man, one vote, one time and then one-party rule until the Big Man leaves feet-first. This as he's playing Gaza's intercessor in the current unpleasantness next door; will the powers that be in the west look the other way?
This move's the biggest turkey of the day, bigger than those six-legged monsters that Madden used to whip up back when he was still doing color on Thanksgiving.
