4 Year-Old Girl Shows Better Understanding of Egyptian Strife Than Pundits on Fox News, CNN

The first credible poll of Egyptian public opinion since protests broke out on January 25th finds that just one measly percent of the population would vote for the Muslim Brotherhood's leaders in an open election. Yet that's the big 'danger of Arab democracy' over which our pasty pundits -- the lion's share of whom have never stepped foot in the country -- seem to obsess.

So it seems that this 4 year-old has a better grasp of the situation than your typical talking head on the teevee.
