Back from vacation...

...and fuck Zimbabwe

The MDC has dropped out of the presidential race, handing it to Mugabe. At first I was very disappointed and thought Mr. Tsvangirai a coward for dropping out. (if the future of your nation is at stake, along with the lives of tens of millions of people and you have to put your life on the line to secure that future then you put your life on the line or step down to someone who will) Then a friend of mine brought up a good tactical thought. At this point everyone knows the election was a farce and support for the MDC is pretty much universal. Had the poll continued and (of course) the ruling regime won, all the Mugabe apologists out there would have been able to claim that Mugabe won a "free and fair" election. I hope it was with this thought in mind Mr. Tsvangirai dropped out.

I can't wait for the books on this election to come out.
