    What should we think of someone who told us last February that he is very familiar with Egyptians and that the Muslim Brotherhood has only "roughly 100,000 followers in Egypt - which has a population of 82 million" and thus that they couldn't possibly win the election?

    By April, though, he was boasting that the "The Brotherhood are [sic] set to win a plurality in September".

    With 62% voter turn-out, there were 51 million voters. Even assuming 100% turn-out amongst the Brothers... their 100,000 votes would amount to a mere 0.2% of the total. Yet they received 47% - 24 million votes? (With a more extremist salafi party taking an addition 25% (another 13 million) votes?

    Hard to tell if such a person is incredibly ignorant/stupid or just dishonest.
    Or Ahmadinejad's voice on RJ...?

    Let's go back to the grammatical error above:

    In English, "brotherhood" is single. Thus "the Brotherhood IS".
    In Arabic (and I'm guessing Farsi), "brotherhood" is plural (the brothers) thus "the Brotherhood ARE).

    No wonder that Propaganda Pouncer has become known as the AyaTrollah.
