CAIRO -- Egypt's largest opposition group, the Muslim Brotherhood, said it would begin talks Sunday with the government to try and end the country's political crisis.

The announcement by the fundamentalist group came on the 13th day of mass demonstrations calling for the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, Egypt's authoritarian ruler of nearly 30 years. Mubarak has said he would not run for the presidency again in elections slated for September, but has insisted he will serve out the remaining seven months of his current term to supervise a peaceful transfer of power.

The outlawed Brotherhood said in a statement that its representatives would meet with Vice President Omar Suleiman to press its "legitimate and just demands."

Senior Brotherhood leader Mohammed Mursi said the group was sticking to the protesters' main condition that Mubarak step down. He told The Associated Press the talks will take place later Sunday.

Oh, this just keeps getting better and better. At this rate, they'll storm our embassy and take hostages by Valentine's Day.

Obama has a harshly worded LETTER already prepared for when they take the first set of hostages.

That will really get their attention.

I'm sure that we'll go with yellow again. It is the color of cowardice, after all. Or perhaps we'll go straight to white ribbons to demonstrate our abject surrender.

He is prepared to deploy every adjective in his arsenal.
