Looks like the prez has speared himself in the foot... :-)

Watching the ANC's frantic attempts to censor the pic out of existence, even on the web, is going to be highly amusing. In the meantime, here it is, just in case they win their case against the gallery:

Download it, and spread it around far and wide.
I find it quite incredible that someone who has made a disrespectable fool of himself for years now, has the audacity to complain that a picture is harming his respectability. He has mostly harmed it himself, and has practically begged satirists on his knees to do this.

I wonder if his court action against Zapiro is still going on? Yet another example of their commitment to freedom of expression, but lucky for us and unlucky for them, in the age of the internet, attempts at censorship are mostly pointless and counter-productive. For this reason I am not too worried about their proposed legislation to "protect state secrets" either. Those secrets will out, whatever the law says.

Now I'm waiting for some YouTube satirist to turn the whole saga into a song. And dare we hope that Nando's will rise to the occasion..? :-)

More muddleheaded commentary.

And then the race card hit the table with an underwhelming thud.

I'm also somewhat bemused by the argument that it insults the majority. As opposed to what? The minority? At the same time also using the granddaddy of bad arguments: religion, cause, you know, insulting religions just aint cool. Not that we really know what religion is being attacked here specifically, but lets call it an affront to religion too, that's sure to work.
