A picture is worth a thousand words, Zeyad, but sometimes names are good too. :)

All in white? Depending on who he is, I'd be worried about rotten fruit...gotta be a horrible dry cleaning bill.

Hmmm...if his last name is also Mubarak, then I would definately be concernced about rotten fruit.

Last name is‘Mubarak’.  And his pharohcity is in substantial doubt.  He's up on criminal charges for corruption.

Re:  American politics, today's note:

I have noticed a steady string of cheerleading articles from Republican appartchiks in the last couple of weeks all cheering and high-fiving and such over what they see as evidence that Mitt Romney intends to run as dirty and divisive a campaign as he thinks he can get away with.  Today's article is:  This sure isn’t the McCain campaign:

      "They [the right-wingers] blanched at the idea of
      running ANOTHER moderate like the hapless Mr.
      McCain, fearing that Mr. Romney lacked the steel for
      what will be a vicious campaign.
"

It's just the latest in a string I've noticed over the past few weeks.
They've intended a vicious campaign this time, from the very day they lost the last presidential campaign.  They've poured money into ‘independent expenditure super-PACs’ where they could make certain there was a viciousness brought to it this time, even if Mitt Romney wanted to run an issues based campaign.  They were gonna do it anyway.
The cheering we're hearing though is from right-wingers who're convinced they've seen the necessary signs from Romney that he's fully on board with the plan to get nasty early and stay nasty long-time.

Obama will fight back.  It's gonna get ugly.

Lee, check again. He was found non guilty of corruption charges as were the generals who ordered revolutionaries to be shot dead. The elder Mubarak was just thrown under the bus.

Yeah, I remember reading that.  I suppose wasn't being specific enough.  Still facing a money laundering charge over billions of dollars sitting in his accounts in Switzerland.  (Better?)
