Egyptian uprising apolitical

During my trip to the ASA Convention, I caught a glimpse of Thomas Friedman on HBO's Bill Maher show.  1) His attempt of sounding folksy is so annoying.  He also thinks he is funny and effective when he keeps saying: OK. OK. OK?  2) He said at one point that he was there during the Egyptian uprising (in his hotel suite) and that the uprising was "apolitical."  I kid you not.  This is a guy who supposedly help Americans understand world affairs.
