Maybe after the Brotherhood’s brothers had their try, Egyptians will just put an end to all the monkey-business in their everyday politics? Like, “All right, we’re screwed, but let’s just straighten things out, sober up for once and make the best of it” But then again, they seem to enjoy the big drama…
