It’s Official: The Pharaohs Should Have Won the Egyptian Revolution

This guy rocks.

Last week’s audience poll concerned the recent Egyptian revolution. Abuse of Discretion readers were overwhelmingly “rooting for the pharaohs” during the 18 days in which millions of Egyptian protesters from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds and religions lamented police brutality, lack of free elections, and uncontrollable corruption. The results of the poll are as follows:

Which of the following best sums up the recent Egyptian revolution?
I was rooting for the pharaohs.: 50%
Who cares? Brown people are so drama.: 27%
A great victory for democracy!: 18%
This won’t change anything, but it was entertaining.: 4%
(Percentages rounded down.)

These results suggest that more than three in four Abuse of Discretion readers didn’t really care about the militant political oppression imposed by dictator Hosni Mubarak, nor were readers particularly concerned with the hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries caused by rioting in the wake of Mubarak’s deposition. Also, people really like mummies.

Please take a moment to answer this week’s poll, which has nothing to do with brown people.
