The gun is mightier than the pen

It appears that Mugabe has given up all pretenses of running a fair election, saying “We are not going to give up our country because of a mere X. How can a ballpoint pen fight with a gun?

I suppose he has a point. Perhaps it depends on the ballpoint pen to gun ratio?

After this announcement, I’ll be completely mortified if any dumbass South African politician asserts that the elections can still be free and fair (as if the intimidation and violence so far wasn’t enough).

  1. Well, it’s mainly Mbeki’s camp that has been pursuing “quiet diplomacy” aka ignoring the problem. Uncle Bob may find himself in considerably more trouble if JZ becomes president; he’s not a big fan.
