Dictator du Jour: Robert Mugabe

CNN expresses some surprise that not much has changed in Zimbabwe after a year of the “power sharing”h deal between ZANU PF and the MDC.

Since Mugabe had a 20 year head start on pillaging Zimbabwe and plundering it's people to benefit his family and cronies, one should not be surprised that it's still a mess, and likely to remain so for as long as Mugabe is alive. Even at that, it will take years to clean up the mess, assuming anyone's willing to try.

As for Tsvangirai, he's been consistently outmanned, outmanuvered, and outgunned. The unity government is working out as just a shell game to shift the blame for failure to Tsvangirai, while Mugabe keeps up his murderous ways.
