You say you want a revolution...

I know nobody cares about this, but I'm damn excited. Opposition protesters in Georgia broke into Parliament and one of the opposition leaders declared herself acting President of Georgia until new Parliamentary elections could be held. President Shevardnadze has left Tbilisi for his summer residence. Will this stick? Will he resign? He's issued an ultimatum: if the protesters do not clear the Tbilisi streets by Monday, he's dispatching the military. But would he? Would they even follow orders? When the protesters broke into Parliament, the police stood aside.
Here's a snapshot of the protesters breaking into Parliament:

And here are the protesters thanking the armed forces for not using force against them. I love the grins on the soldiers' faces:
