The scientific definition of insanity is making the same mistakes and expecting different results. There is a structural problem in the government that requires a fundamental reform of policies and change of personnel. The first step in this reform process is relieving Prime Minister Hesham Qandil of his duties because he clearly cannot deliver. However, President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood insisted on Qandil and more of their members and supporters in the new Cabinet. If Qandil could not perform his duties before, why would he be any different now? Morsi needs to choose a sane Cabinet with clear policies of reform, not the same individuals who will make the same mistakes. What was announced yesterday is not a cabinet reshuffle, it’s political insanity.
