89 years old? This will most likely be the last election he tries to rig, regardless of the results.

Well, on the OTHER hand, they don't start the election season for July elections until July.

So, there's one nice thing.

It takes a special kind of arsehole to be universally despised by everyone from the far right to the far left.

I'm struck by how this is coming as Nelson Mandela is (reportedly) on his deathbed, because Mandela showed a far better way to bring a nation out of a brutal system that codified white supremacy than Mugabe ever has.

I have him blocked, but did he really just threadshiat about ACORN in a Mugabe thread? Talk about a one-trick troll.

As we learned from Qaddafi, dictators have no sense of irony.

Do any of you remember when his opponent (last real one) tried to higher and assassin in Canada?  Turned out that the "former Mosad" agent was still quite active and turned the info over to Mugabbie and his boys what the opposition was up to.   Foreign interests like having a government they've bribed, a gov that has granted them some rather unfair and lucrative contracts, to remain in power as long as possible or else there would be embargo's and such.

A really sweet way to do it is to set up a two party system where 1/2 of the people agree with different platforms of each party.  Then when it comes to elections make it so which ever candidate gets elected those items that the people care about never get any substantial action.  The people will bicker about stuff that will never get any real or substantive changes.  This allows you and your friends the ability to raid the nations treasury without anyone caring.

I think after keeping himself in power all these years it seems Mugabe's number one interest has been in power for the sake of having power. Had Mugabe been born with white skin he probably would have been trying with all his might to hold onto white rule so that he could have held power as the white ruler of Zimbabwe for decades.

Indeed. There are few people who would so enrich the world by their deaths. He's one of them.

I do miss such things. When I was in Britain you could only sign up to run 25 days before election day, and you didn't know when an election day would be exactly until it was announced. There are no tv commercials either and so on. It is why the UK elections cost $49 million and US elections cost $6 billion. I missed those days at times. Especially when we get till only 12 months before the US elections and they go nuts.

With Gadhafi now rotting in a hole somewhere, I guess that makes Mugabe the new Don Cherry of third world dictators

Stevie Wonder still has to rewrite the lyrics to "Master Blaster", maybe change the bit about Zimbabwe to Newark or something, and THEN we'll be done.

He had the right idea back back back in the mists of time. It would have worked....if Mugabe hadn't been a mean-spirited despot who wanted all the money RIGHT NOW. If he'd actually been willing to give his theory of slowly edging the white farmers out and buying them off, it might have worked over the long term. But he didn't want to wait. Because he was as evil a black racist as anyone in Rhodesia was a white racist.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Cox&Forkum/Mugabe death match. There are two of them, and he's quite old, but Mugabe would fight dirty, no doubt about it.

It was fun to watch him have to be nice to white Zimbabwean Kirsty Coventry when she increased Zimbabwe's Olympic medal count from one medal to eight medals.

As much as we all want to see Mugabe out of power, I'm not sure that's really going to solve much. The issues with limited farmland being controlled by a small minority aren't going away. And turning it over to the majority has been a productivity disaster. Seems like the people are screwed either way. Well, until whoever is in charge next turns the whole of the very small fraction of land in the country that can be farmed over to China, who will likely make it very productive but not for the benefit of Zimbabwe.
