Mugabe Beaten

It looks as if Bad Bob Mugabe has lost yesterday's Zimbabwe Presidential election. The elections seem to have been more or less fair (a bad sign for the dictator right there), but the giveaway is that the results aren't coming out yet.
If the dictator is having to so blatantly rig the count, he has already lost. It indicates two things: (1) the anti-Mugabe vote was so high that minor tampering won't work; and (2) that the other controls: the administration of the poll itself, together with intimidation and violence against opponents -- have already failed.
Okay, now comes the real election. How good are your police Bob ? Are your bureaucrats and goons going to obey now, or save themselves by throwing your carcass off the palace balcony ?
