Excellent article by Steven Hayward at Power Line.
The important point that Steven is saying is that yes, Egypt will overthrow Mubarak, and have a free democratic election. Once! Who will win? Most likely the Muslim Brotherhood. Then there will be no more democracy.
Just because things are bad, doesn't mean they can't get worse. My guess is that Egypt is such a shit hole, the people will roll the dice. And things may even get better--for a while. Like socialism or communism.
Islam, where will it lead? One would want to look at other Islamic countries for that answer.
