Scary political transition of the week

With Thabo Mbeki stepping down, South Africa is one step closer to being led by the Communist Jacob Zuma. Not that Mbeki is a saint, but at least a free economy was his number one priority. Props to Mbeki for trying to uphold the rule of law, I just wish there were more in that country who acted on that principle.
Check out this political poster hung up in the politics department at the University of Pretoria. Scary how even the Democrats that give me the heebie jeebies in America are further to the right than nearly all South Africans.
