A Guide to Egyptian Candidates

I had missed this so far, but it went the rounds in the wake of Field Marshal Tantawi's celebrated appearance on the streets in a civilian suit. I'm getting it from the blog Send Down the Basket, which I noted earlier today.  The title is "List of Candidates for the Presidency." They are listed as Miltiary, Civilian, Islamic, Coptic, Bedouin, and so on. They are all, of course, Field Marshal Tantawi.

Sadly, not a faux cowboy, serial bankrupt real estate mogul, or pizza magnate in the lot.

Long way till they reach the level achieved in the advanced democracies.
