Egyptian Democracy in Action

And when I say "action", I mean one way action-another hapless female Western journalist, this time a French chick, on the receiving end of a lot of Egyptian man-love action. Thirty on one actually.

That's a lot of action!

Funny though, the Associated Press doesn't see it right now as sexual assault. Ho hum: 

"It was the latest case of violence against women at the epicenter of Egypt's restive protests."

The "restive" action sounds a little terrifying to me: 

"The crowd surged in and then it went crazy. It was basically me keeping her in a bear hug, both arms around her and face-to-face," he told The Associated Press, estimating that at least 30 men were involved."

"It was hard to tell who was helping and who was groping her."


Egyptian democracy!  

But don't worry, she still loooooves "Tahrir". 

In bygone days, you could metaphorically leave your heart in San Francisco. 

These women leave their brains in New York and Paris when they report from Cairo. They are damned lucky to get out alive. And still they go....
