TheFritz takes the dick! TheFritz takes the dick!

Nelson Mandela, at last.

Ugh, the internet is going to be all gunked up with this for a while, eh? Oh, well. In a week of personal lameness, I can squeeze two blog days out of the old terrorist.

That’s right, folks. Here. Tomorrow. Six sharp WBT.
Dead Pool Round 55!

Well done, theFritz! My goodness but it took that old commie a long, long time to die.

I’ll be here tomorrow for the next round, and choose David Rockefeller Sr. again unless someone else snatches him up first – in which case I will hunt down the perpetrator and place a dead mackerel on the exhaust manifold of his automobile engine.

I’ll be here if I have power. We’re in the middle of an ice storm. Lovely. I’m going to decorate my Christmas tree and drink. Not necessarily in that order. Tree should look interesting in the morning. I’ve already started on the drinking part.

I choose the White Widow, since she’s only most likely dead, not confirmed dead.

Well, you’ve gotta give ol’ Nels credit where credit’s due – he outlived most of the ones he was opposed to, IIRC, and he outlived incarceration in a South African pokey for quite a spell…man had to have some hard bark on ‘im, that’s for sure…

Still – seems entirely possible his will be one of those funerals where half (or more) who attend are there to make sure he’s actually in the box when they screw down the lid. Well-liked in some quarters, well and truly hated in a good many others.

Congrats to thefritz, and we’ll play another round – say, maybe steve would like to choose Insaney Red-Pants Janey this time around, and put the heavy-duty hex on ‘er. Whattayasay, steve?…

I’m waiting to see if the ethnic cleansing campaign his former followers promised upon his death actually happens..

He already did, BJM. Something about being inspired by Mandela, etc, etc.. I’ll be sure to not watch any news for the next week so I won’t see the whole shebang.

In our sorghum quasi republic our benevolent conquering son of a magical goatherd will appoint a taxidermied Mandela to reign over the pasty-complected oppressor class.

In our surreal and risible days, it is more palatable to watch Vlad poot-poot than Federalissimo Soetoro.

Do not rule out that Kim Jonquil might make more sense than the US official.

Congrats, theFritz.

This could get good. There’s no doubt that Barry will attend the state funeral of St. Nelson. He will surely take a huge entourage. Oprah, the Congressional Black Caucus, Hillary and Bill, etc.

How do we decide a winner if several picks die in the same crash into the South Atlantic or the dryer parts of Namibia?

My understanding, JS, is that once Mandela became an international superstar, he was moved out of the famous little cell and into what can best be described as a suite or apartment. So the prison he consistently refused to leave was a pretty cushy deal.

Of course, some unenlightened bigot might be spreading lies on that score…

3 hots and a cot, all the down low action, never a lion in sight, never a Goodyear necklace.… sheeeit, it was like a Gstaad.
Why would he ever want to leave?

Good job Fritz. I say we give you and Steve all our suggestions.

I have a long list of chores to do—especially Christmas sewing projects (even though I’m sick—cough, cough). Now I can turn off the television for the next ten days and listen full-time to Radio Swiss Jazz—the finest jazz collection on the internet. Some Ottmar Liebert or Gene Harris will do nicely.

Mandela was a communist who was at best leader of a terrorist organization if not a violent terrorist himself. He marched singing songs about how evil white men are and why they should die. Upon leaving prison one of the first things he did was go to a Communist rally, and his wife is an evil murdering scum.

However, that said, he seems to have mellowed with age and became non violent, he did usher in the end of Apartheid, an evil, stupid system, and he did run the country better than the guys in there now.

Oh, make no mistake, Miz Sweasey, et.al. – I’ve no doubt that the “durance” for ol’ Nels was not ‘zactly “vile”, ‘specially after he “went viral” and became, to All The World, the official poster-person for South African Let-My-People-Go “insurgency”, any more than I doubt the stories (rumors? more like…realities, perhaps?) of what was done at his direction/behest during that “insurgency”. Apartheid was a bad idea, badly handled, and simply WRONG – “separate but equal” never is (either one), and South African apartheid policies and processes never made much of a stab at even coming close to being that – but the terrorism practiced in opposition to it is pretty difficult to justify, by any measure, and Nels was in there whole-hog. Therefore and thereby, he well deserved some “durance vile” – far more than he likely got.

You’ve just gotta see him as being some kind of home-grown success, though – he managed to survive it all for a very long stretch, and come to be “a name”, pretty much around the world. The homeland hero, writ large…

Kinda like Li’l Obambam would really, really like to be – like Da Wun, in fact, already sees himself as being.

Well when he got in office, Mandela was a lot less radical and awful than he was before then. It seems his time in prison mellowed him some. He was a pretty good president and then he retired rather than stay in power his whole life like a lot of folks in that area.

Who is that handsome chap on the left hand of Mandiba? It is the ZA’s equivalent of R’a HM 3’manuel… Joe Slovo! A true patriot, selfless public servant and a genuine, committed Seffrican of impeccable pedigree chosen on the Mountain.
