    Chances of a public debate

    I just knew this was going to happen ever since Jacob Zuma threw down the challenge of a public debate against the "ANC dissidents."
    African National Congress president Jacob Zuma's decision to turn down an invitation to a public debate is regrettable, Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille said on Wednesday.

    "I learnt today that Zuma has for the fourth time passed up an opportunity of a public debate on matters of policy with me -- this is regrettable, especially since Zuma challenged his political opponents to a debate on policies during a speech at the Jabulani Stadium in Soweto on Sunday," Zille said in a statement.

    Can you imagine having a USA style public debate between the leaders of the top parties here?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Then there is the issue of the second coming.

    I don't see JZ going up against Zille, that's for sure.

    I noticed a poster at one of the Shikota (The New Adventures of the Old ANC) rallies that read, "Zuma, Jesus has come"
