Happy Sunday from Zimbabwe, “land of the revolutionary leader"--who has been PM/Pres. for 33 years.

Ahead of 7/31 elex, Zimbabwe papers filled w/ spreads of Mugabe smiling faces. Common refrain among [press-suspicious] people: “Mugabe is the only leader we know, why wouldn’t we vote for him again?"

Just received an e-mail with the subject line: “You eating a baby."
