Zimbabwe Votes

Dictator Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF party has won a majority government in Zimbabwe, CBC reports.

Mugabe's party has won 46 seats, which combined with the 30 seats appointed directly by Mugabe, gives him a majority.

Pikers. Our friendly dictator gets to appoint an entire house of Parliament.

Although there was little bloodshed in this election campaign, opposition leaders and independent observers said intimidation was rife, and that the electoral roll had been tampered with. They believe the list was inflated by the inclusion of up to a million dead people.

Our natural governing party prefers to carry out its intimidation more gently.

Fortunately, it is not so corrupt that it adds millions of dead to the electoral rolls to cast reliable Liberal votes.
