Joke of the Day
Why is it that parties that are losing touch with their voters so quickly become delusional. Case in point - the PAC. After a decade are hemorrhaging members and voters, so much so that they hold just 1% of the electorate, the PAC stated yesterday that it had set itself the goal of reaching 20% of the electorate in less than three years.

PAC president Letlapa Mphahlele said that the party "resolved to appoint an election campaign committee to work on a strategy." For the PAC's sake, let's hope that Karl Rove's brain, Nelson Mandela's personality and Bill Gates' pockets are on that committee.
