Wassup?

I’m not sure what I find more depressing here:  http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/nov/05/robert-mugabe-launches-into-rap

The concept of the 86-year old despot Robert Mugabe “rapping” in order to appeal to young Zimbabwean voters ahead of a potential election next year?   Or the prospect of having to watch the 86-year old despot Robert Mugabe participate in another charade of an election next year?

Maybe I should just feel heartened that he feels some vague need to appear “relevant” to young voters.  As opposed, of course, to just threatening them, killing them, or buying them off.
