The Telling Response

After the shooting in Tuscon, we've been treated to yet another episode of American political culture tearing itself apart. Some men just want to see the world burn, and this guy is getting exactly what he wants.

Compare that, if you will, to Egypt's response to their latest round of terrorism.

"Stop blaming Al-Qaeda and Israel for this massacre, this crisis is of our own making. I’m sick and tired of flag-waving, of the self-congratulatory slogans that translate into nothing, tired of the gush of sympathy that will dissolve in no time. I want firm actions from the government, from civil society, from religious institutions to eradicate the deeply-entrenched roots of this evil."

Yeah, that's one hell of a quote.
