Bush '04, Mugabe '05; A tale of similar fates

Gene C. Gerard makes interesting comparisons between Bush's re-election last November and Mugabe's victory in the Zimbabwean parliamentaries last month in this article. Mr. Gerard fittingly concludes the article with this insightful indicment:
"The Bush administration, and indeed many Americans, love to hold up America as a beacon to the rest of the world. They insist that we are the ultimate democracy to which totalitarian governments, third-world nations, and banana republics should attempt to emulate. If that’s the case, Zimbabwe is already very American."
