Egypt’s Elections: Progress or Regress? Masri Misery?
Quizzical readers! It costs no quid to equip oneself by quitting over to this exquisite enquirer for quick disquisitions on the quinellas of Egypt’s requisitioned elections of quislings and inquisitors .
More substance, and less art and alliteration: seems the recent elections left a lot to be desired in the "genuine democracy" category. See Mona Eltahawy's latest in al-Sharq al-Awsat for the latest on Masri misery.

My egyptian (Christian, which, yes, is relevant in this case) is close to despair over the degree to which the Brotherhood's power has increased during the election.

My egyptian friend, of course. Duh. Brain not working at sufficient capacity to handle parentheticals, apparently.
