Freedom's Beat Marches On

Now, even Egypt has joined the ranks of those who will be holding free elections (or at least let's hope).

The Freedom Scorecard thus far:
  1. Afghanistan
  2. Iraq
  3. Palestine
UPDATE: Powerline notes that several Egyptian opposition parties don't believe the Mubarak concessions have gone far enough. While this is an understandable reaction (and I am cynical, too), just as we saw in Eastern Europe in the late '80s and early '90s, its hard to get the genie back in the bottle once you have given the people hope. A fresh breeze is blowing throughout the Middle East and it's not the scirocco.
