Mubarak’s No Dictator?

by Michael Rubin

It’s a good thing that Vice President Biden isn’t a school teacher.  If he believes that Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak is not a dictator, can you imagine what other gems he would impart in a history class?  Just a few guesses:

  • Pol Pot successfully lowered health care costs across Cambodia
  • Attila the Hun managed to reduce prison overcrowding dramatically.
  • Marie Antoinette had a fantastic pound cake recipe she generously sought to share with the common people.
  • North Korea’s Kim Il-sung was really quite fashionable.
  • The PLO’s Yasir Arafat was really quite the lady’s man.
