“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”

Stunning news out of Egypt: Hosni Mubarak Gamal Abdel-Nasser Generalissimo Francisco Franco Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi is planning to run for the presidency:

Sisi is expected to secure a landslide victory in the presidential elections, having earned a cult status among many Egyptians.

Well, something tells me he’ll manage to secure a landslide victory regardless of whatever status he holds “among many Egyptians.” Michael Collins Dunn notes that it’s a little strange, but not really, that Sisi broke the news to a Kuwaiti newspaper first. It always pays to run your plans by the money guys before you let the little people know. At least Sisi is keeping it humble:

In Thursday’s edtion of the newspaper, Sisi said: “The decision has been made, and I have to succumb to the people’s demand of running for the republic’s presidency.”

That sentence is pretty much the summary of Newt Gingrich’s wildest dreams.

"I didn't want to run, but the people, they love and need me so much that I had to do it"
“I didn’t want to run, but the people, they made me do it”
