Dictator du Jour: Robert Mugabe

Is publicly hoping that the talks over powersharing with the MDC ‘succeed’.

Somehow, the piece neglects to mention that Mugabe defines success as the MDC doing all the sharing (mostly beatings, burnings, and executions), while Mugabe keeps all the power.

Alternatively, he’s hoping to lure Tsvangirai back into Zimbabwe in an empty position, and simply wait until everyone goes back to worrying about Britney Spears.
