Muslim Brotherhood cracks dictator joke, makes oh-so-shocking pick for Person of the Year

Yep, the Muslim Brotherhood’s English language Twitter account has opted to endorse its favorite Egyptian dictator for Time magazine’s Person of the Year nod. That’s right, not Benjamin Netanyahu, Michael Bloomberg or maybe viral video star PSY — the Brotherhood is going all in for Mohamed Morsi.

Who’d a thunk it?

Yes, we’re doing McKayla Maroney’s “not impressed” face. But we expect Morsi’s fellow Person of the Year nominee Sandra Fluke will be crushed. Crushed! Not because an aspiring tyrant was nominated, mind you, but because of the patriarchal boys club.

The Muslim Brotherhood also had itself a smiley emoticon-enhanced giggle over Morsi’s recent move to “temporarily” grant himself dictatorial powers.

Er … LOL tyranny? Unfortunately, we’re pretty sure that was more of a maniacal Dr. Evil laugh than an “OMG kitteh haz cheezburger” giggle.

After cracking a dictator joke and pimping out Morsi for POTY, @Ikhwanweb was back to doing what the people behind the account love best: spreading propaganda.

Low turnout? The pictures speak for themselves.

    Gee, I figured the Brotherhood would be on the Sandra Fluke for TIme’s Person of the Year bandwagon.

    I thought they’d all be behind our Aspiring Dictator Barack Obama since he is funneling them billions of dollars, after all.

    I thought they’d be more humble and support Obama for Person of the Year. He thinks they’re fine and dandy, ya know.

    Actually, it’s more of a Freudian Slip. They wouldn’t object and would celebrate the Person of The Year nod.

    Not surprising. Former Time Magazine Persons of the Year: Hitler, Mao, & Mussolini. Oh & last year, remember — The ” random & generic” Occupy Wall Street protester. Time is nothing more than bird-cage liner anymore. In fact, they should “go green” and stop paper publishing to go online only.

      Given that Newsweek went online only, I suspect it’s only a matter of time for Time (pun intended).

    Crap, if Morsi wins he’ll have one more than me (and you). I still look fondly on my laminated cover showing “my” 2006 win. :::sniff:::sniff
