Let Mandela go

The politics of Nelson Mandela's imminent passing are offensive in the extreme.

Mandela's legacy is already the focus of a tug-of-war among opportunists of all stripes. The extended family is warring among themselves on how to best capitalize on their connections to him. His one-time political heirs are upping the ante and hope to gain both financially and at the ballot box.

What a shameful spectacle!
