UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Zimbabwe won approval on Friday to head a key U.N. body charged with promoting economic progress and environmental protection despite protests from the U.S., European nations and human rights organizations.
Ah, yes, Zimbabwe, headed by brutal thug Robert Mugabe, a paragon of economic insight.
For close to seven years, Zimbabwe’s economy and quality of life have been in slow, uninterrupted decline. They are still declining this year, people there say, with one notable difference: The pace is no longer so slow.
Indeed, Zimbabwe’s economic descent has picked up so much speed that President Robert Mugabe, the nation’s ruler for the past 27 years, is starting to lose support from parts of his own party.
I’m thinking we foment a violent overthrow and install David to bring prosperity to his former home.
And then we celebrate with beer. Mmm, beer.
Next Rocky Mountain Bloggger Bash? Harare, baby.
