One blogger’s personal bridge to nowhere

Zimbabwean Zimbabwe

mugabeRobert Mugabe’s legitimacy apparently rests on the incoherent repetition of one word at a time:

I will never, never, never, never surrender. Zimbabwe is mine, I am a Zimbabwean. Zimbabwe for Zimbabweans. Zimbabwe never for the British, Britain for the British.

I think we can see where this logic leads us.  I am an American, America for the Americans, America is mine.  Along with every other American’s, of course…But never for the British.  They already have Britain.

UPDATE: It’s worth noting that Dr. Evil Mugabe could legitimately ask the world for $100,000,000,000 (Zimbabwean)…and receive about $4.
