Musharraf Promises Pakistan Elections: Today's Cartoon

To me, the rationale that Pakistan's state of emergency will ensure a fair general election in January makes perfect sense... provided that the "general" being elected is Pervez Musharraf.

You know, I can understand opposition leader Benazir Bhutto's frustration. Here you have a situation where a military dictator is making a mockery of the democratic process, by doing everything in his power to prevent the "fair and free" election of the only person that seems to be on the ballot. I mean, how hard can it be for the campaign's only viable candidate to lose an election against an incumbent that doesn't even believe in democracy?

I guess it's too bad for John Kerry that he's not Pakistani, because not even he could lose this election.
