33% turnout? Really? You slept and fought and died in the streets for the right to choose your own destiny. Now you petulantly sit on your hands and let it be hijacked by a whole new set of despots? Really? The new Constitution got 66% of the vote. That's 22% of eligible voters. What do you think you accomplished by letting less than a quarter of you dictate what your rights will be? The opportunity to sleep and protest and riot and die all over again? You could learn something from the slogan I have stuck on the bumper of my car. EARN YOUR RIGHT TO BITCH. VOTE!

Isn't that more than the first election? Many people still find it hard to believe the election's not a death trap.

Tahrir Square isn't a death trap? This was an organized boycott by the opposition, akin to the narcissists here in the States who don't vote to "send a message", which sends awful politicians laughing into power.
