Everything is okay in Zimbabwe

Thabo Mbeki, President of South Africa, has assured the world that the fact that Robert Mugabe, long-time President of Zimbabwe, the guiding hand behind its policies of giving productive land to whomever most supports the ruling party and architect of its truly amazing Weimar-esque inflation, has sent the police and military into the streets to make sure that the election he (probably) just lost will end up going his way in a runoff after all, is not evidence of a crisis or a continuing dictatorship. This is certainly the best news Mbeki has given the world since informing us all that HIV doesn't cause AIDS.
Guess it's times for an orgy in Harare.
