I find myself not too happy with Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today. It appears that on Wednesday he went on to the liberal talk radio show of Bill Press and said?
BILL PRESS:? Alright, well good for you. You know, we gotta work on that, because they are just shutting down progressive talk from one city after another. All we want is, you know, some balance on the airwaves, that’s all. You know, we’re not going to take any of the conservative voices off the airwaves, but just make sure that there are a few progressives and liberals out there, right?
SENATOR TOM HARKIN (D-IA): Exactly, and that’s why we need the fair — that’s why we need the Fairness Doctrine back.
NBC News is reporting that after an all day meeting Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will step down, handing over power to his recently appointed Vice President Omar Suleiman, and that all of the protesters demands will be met. The official announcement is expected later tonight (Cairo time) when Mubarak will address the nation. After 17 days of Pro-Democracy demonstrations, it appears that the 30 year old military dictatorship in Egypt is finally coming to an end.
