Limerick

I posted this in the comments section over at the limerick free-for-all at Small Dead Animals, and enjoyed it so much that I thought I'd share it:

A feckless bootlicker named Jason,
Thought his leader was quite a sensation,
when the twit lost the race,
and the party lost face,
he proclaimed it was self-immolation!

I'd like to respect Cherniak, but - let's put this as politely as possible - he's so full of crap he could moonlight as a septic tank. When your party is down, drop the spin and at least be honest about it.

The Fall of Zimbabwe


Zimbabwe is "closer than ever to complete collapse" under the weight of a deepening economic crisis that threatens to destabilise southern Africa, an independent report said today.

The International Crisis Group (ICG) called on the Southern African Development Community (SADC) group of nations to overcome internal divisions and focus on ways to persuade Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe to step down.

"SADC must resolve internal differences about how hard to press into retirement Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's 83-year-old president and liberation hero, and the wider international community needs to give it full support," the Brussels-based think tank said in a report. **



A good friend of mine is an international student at my university from Zimbabwe, and she has family there. Despite the rampant inflation rate (I wonder how she can afford to come here to study - international students pay through the nose, tuition-wise), she seems a strong supporter of this dictator. I just hope that her family will be okay.
