Egypt continues to be embroiled in turmoil.
Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood have lost their shot at power in Egypt (nice job with that, fellas!!), much to the chagrin of our President. After all, Obama was one of Morsi’s biggest supporters, with the story of the two men playing out similarly to one of those old ‘boy-meets-girl’ trade paperbacks:
Now, no one’s quite sure as to exactly WHAT form of government will ultimately replace the Morsi regime in the long term, although the general consensus seems to be: probably something even worse.

Yeah, I’m a huge, unapologetic Steyn fan: sue me.
Have you read his books? As far as I’m concerned, if someone doesn’t enjoy his writing style, insight & wit, well…there may be no hope for them.
This post? Great stuff; be sure to read it all.

A week ago on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” David Gregory brandished on screen a high-capacity magazine.
To most media experts, a “high-capacity magazine” means an ad-stuffed double-issue of Vanity Fair with the triple-page perfume-scented pullouts. But apparently in America’s gun-nut gun culture of gun-crazed gun kooks, it’s something else entirely, and it was this latter kind that Mr. Gregory produced in order to taunt Wayne LaPierre of the NRA.

I went to the store last weekend to buy some replacement 100-watt light bulbs….and I couldn’t find any.
Now, they had puh-lenty of bulbs: the squiggly, wiggly ones, along with several other shapes I’d never seen before. Plus, they also had a modest section of the normal incandescent 60- and 75-watt bulbs, but no 100’s.
And then I recalled, again, the Great Light Bulb Debacle®.
If you need a refresher on this subject, or if you’d just appreciate a fresh excuse to grind some of the enamel off your teeth, here you go (h/t the Washington Times):

Do you remember a bully in your life? Do you also remember the first time you confronted him/her? Boy, I sure do…and I’m betting you do, too.
American culture has always celebrated the ‘little guy’ standing up to the bully. It’s been a common theme in stories, books, and movies ranging from A Christmas Story, to The Magnificent Seven, to The Ten Commandments. Such a fascination with rooting for the underdog isn’t difficult to trace: it’s part of our country’s fabric. The Revolutionary War itself was the ultimate story of standing up to the biggest bully around.
So I find it a little troubling that, more and more, bullying tactics by the Left are excused, embraced or flat-out ignored. We’ve seen it with the voter intimidation in Philadelphia back in 2008; we’ve seen it with the Occupy Movement; we saw it with the Wisconsin recall aftermath.
And now we’re seeing it with the incident up in Michigan the other night.
Just in case you think this is all a grand coincidence, please allow Mark Steyn to set you straight (via The Daily Caller):
