Morsi flees palace Open Thread

I went out to run one errand and came back to discover that Egyptian President Morsi had fled his palace after protesters breached police barricades.  I have no idea whether this means Morsi’s brief sharia reign is over, or whether he’ll be be, redoubling the oppression.

What do you think?

    It doesn’t matter – the two most powerful factions (by far) in Egypt are the Muslim Brotherhood and the even-worse Salaafists (Al Qaeda types). The Copts and Western-style reformers are a tiny minority, may 15% of the population.

    If we are lucky, the army will use this opportunity to conduct a coup and reestablish a more-moderate dictatorship.

    Morsi is Obama’s homeboy – no way around that!
