It's nice to see Bobby Mugabe get out once in a while!

Bobby Mugabe gets picked on again
(Hat tip:

I mean, I know he's a got a busy schedule grinding the faces of his subjects and generally he only gets out for his yearly "shop 'til you drop" trip. So it was really nice of the United Nations kleptocrats to invite him to speak at one of their expense account padding events in Rome and as usual, he was a crowd pleaser:
Mugabe departed from his text at a ceremony marking the 60th anniversary of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to accuse Bush and Blair of illegally invading Iraq and looking to unseat governments elsewhere.

"Must we allow these men, the two unholy men of our millennium, who in the same way as Hitler and Mussolini formed (an) unholy alliance, formed an alliance to attack an innocent country?" he asked rhetorically.

"The voice of Mr Bush and the voice of Mr Blair can't decide who shall rule in Zimbabwe, who shall rule in Africa, who shall rule in Asia, who shall rule in Venezuela, who shall rule in Iran, who shall rule in Iraq," he said.
And who shall go shopping in Malaysia.
While all the other leaders who addressed the assembly from a lectern did so standing alone, Mugabe was flanked by two bodyguards who stood inches away as he accused Bush and Blair of creating "an inferno" in Iraq.
Probably to keep the ole wingnut from toppling over. Don't worry, Bobby, we know where to find you.

Update: Groupies!

Mugabe checks out his favorite groupie, Hugo Chavez
