I thought the obvious conclusion MSM would push is that El Baradei is a nice guy but too weak to rule and/or his obsession with civil rights will open the door for the Muslim Brotherhood.
But I was watching Hannity (Scarborough?) today and Dick Morris ("a pimpish clown" in Thomas777's words) was the guest, and he completely skipped this step, instead describing El Baradei himself as essentially pro-terrorist. Some points that stuck with me about his analysis of the situation:
- El Baradei is "pro-Iran" because he didn't support sanctions against Iran while with the IAEA
- Letting El Baradei come to power will turn Egypt into a terrorist state run by him as populist dictator
- The American economy will be adversely effected because (I forget his logic here) it will cause us to spiral into a period of rampant inflation and joblessness.
Any thoughts on this? I wish I could find the clip but it's apparently too fresh.
