But He's a Muslim!

Jonathan Chait suggests that Hosni Mubarak jump into the 2012 GOP field:

The GOP field is torn between candidates with executive experience but no foreign policy experience (i.e., governors like Mitt Romney or Mitch Daniels) and candidates with foreign policy experience but no executive experience. Mubarak has both!

You want a candidate who's tough on Islamists? The other Republicans can talk all they want about doubling Gitmo, but only Mubarak has imprisoned and tortured Islamists. You can't possibly get to the right of him on this issue. And he's extremely pro-Israel.

He may be a despot, but he's more qualified for the presidency than Palin, Santorum, Bachmann...
