Num­ber One is re­ally tired. Hav­ing put him­self on a tight sched­ule by go­ing ev­ery­where to show that he ain’t go­ing nowhere, he is now feel­ing the ef­fects. Last week, at yet another man­i­festo launch speech, the Prez de­clared: “There is ev­i­dence ev­ery­where you go that South Africa is the fu­ture of this coun­try.” Huh? many asked, brows knit­ted. But he has been say­ing a lot of sweet noth­ings lately. Here’s another gem: “What is free­dom? Be­cause there is a way to un­der­stand free­dom in gen­er­al­ity. Be­cause if you un­der­stand it in gen­er­al­ity, you might think we have achieved it.” Eish, the dia­lec­tics.
