#10 I suppose he's going to accumulate 80 million bucks first and then go straight to being an ex-dictator, hypochondria optional.

#15 Leading opposition figures including Mohammed ElBaradei, the former head of the UN International Atomic Energy Agency, Amr Moussa, the former head of the Arab League, and Abdelmoneim Aboul Fotouh, a moderate Islamist who challenged Mr Morsi for the presidency, announced the formation of a "National Salvation Front" to fight the decision.
Well. The opposition wheels out a veritable Murderers Row. Mr. Potato Head, Jerry Lewis's Bumbling Arab Twin and...the Other Guy. Considering their enviable track records, I'd say Morsi has nothing to worry about...
