Wow.  I know I was wondering which way the cards would fall on this one.  Robert Mugabe wins the election.

Let’s see… he takes the last election where he lost, recounts it until… until… essentially until all hope of a valid election dissipates like smoke and then has a new election.

Luckily he was able to intimidate his nasty for-the-people opposition by threatening the lives of him and everyone around him.

The margin was narrow – he won by one vote.

Just hours after electoral officials said Mugabe won Friday’s presidential runoff, which observers said was marred by violence and intimidation, the 84-year-old leader sounded a conciliatory note.

“Sooner or later, as diverse political parties, we shall start serious talks,” he said in a speech following his swearing-in. He also had promised talks on the eve of the vote.

Translation: We shall start serious talks (on how to kill everybody with even an ounce of fight in them).

Wonder why the rest of the world doesn’t sem to care?

Watch your vegetation.  It is marching.
