Pity Zimbabwe

Imagine, for a moment, what might happen if we took a man like this at his word:

President Robert Mugabe on Friday sharply criticised US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, saying she was a "slave" to white masters in Washington who had branded Zimbabwe an outpost of tyranny.

Launching the election campaign of his ruling party, Mugabe referred to Rice as "that girl born out of the slave ancestry, who should know from the history of slavery in America, from the president (sic) situation of blacks in America that the white man is not a friend".

"The white man is the slave master to her," said Mugabe in a two-hour speech launching the campaign of his Zimbabwe African National Union - Patriotic Front (Zanu-PF) party for the March 31 parliamentary elections.

I'm quite comfortable with my decision to pick this bastard for the Dead Pool.

One day, she's going to stab one of these freaks in the eye with a Visconti pen, and I'm going to be a very happy woman.

Mugabe has proven to be a disgrace, but that doesn't change the fact that Rice, besides having enough skeletons in her closet from her association with the Abu Graib affair and moronic support for Heir Bush, is incredibly out of touch with the interests of her people.

Actually, Stephen, considering the recent elections, in which the majority of the people voted to keep "Heir"(sic) Bush in office while giving his party greater majorities in the House and Senate, it would appear that you are 'out of touch with the interests of the people'.

Good one Stephen, arguments that start out with "Mugabe has proven to be a disgrace, but ..." win me over every time.
