repetition can be stupid…
Barack Obama has just gone and recreated the Clinton years and even gotten his wife on board. You wonder who the new Lewinsky is because a lot of what is going on is way too familiar. You wonder what spell the poor bloke is under and what he needed to fix that led to him bringing Hillary on board.
Of course on substance I think Hillary would have made a better president but come on man, secretary of state. She voted for the war remember? Isn’t that like a fundamental flaw in foreign policy. But then again is he really choosing the cabinet or did the bloke have a few deals done to get him there that he has to pay for? I wont speculate because next thing, I have a few CIA agents crawling up my arse looking for bugs.
And the news coming out of Harare is getting more and more grim by the moment because now death and disaster are real. real people dealing with real and ugly issues. You get what i mean?
But somewhere in between there was an article by the Zambian post about Tsvangirai pushing his luck a bit too far and what with Cde Thabo’s letter having censured him and by extension publicly then I would really hate to be him right now.
But that is the repetitive sin that is performed like an art these days. And you just wonder what the next turn might be. Because we love it dont we? It is dead stupid and it feels so brilliant.
But it is our obsession.
Tsvangirai has alienated people that at worst sympathised with him by obsessing about the west. It used to be something that was often shouted from the hills of the Kopje in Harare but has become almost common cause with the African brothers. He has skillfuly managed to box himself into a corner where he could easily become a Savimbi. He doesnt realise the way Africa now does not want to be aligned to the west. Hell the west doesnt really want to align itself to itself right now.
Well it is stupid. It is repetition
