    Two comments:

    1) Russia is still pissed about their failure in Afghanistan
    2) Somone must have spiked Putin;s vodka with Dioxyn

    Never mind his posturing. He's just being.....well, Russian.

    the comments which preceded and followed his statements concerning our elections...



    It perhaps goes without saying that it is a bit more interesting to watch on C-SPAN, with facial expressions, gesticulations, and what have you, but nevertheless the press conference was quite interesting, and if you have the time you should take a few minutes to read through it:

    you know aside from the whole 21st century czar thing he's got going on, i like putin. he's that bastard that knows where the bodies are buried and who put them there, and he also will not let russia fade away on his watch if he can help it. i respect that, far better performance than yeltsin. eventually, maybe putin will improve on that whole czar bit... but when you're going into a summit where you've been screwing up by the numbers the past few months with the POTUS, maybe you should posture "russian" style a bit less.

    nevertheless, again, a real improvement over yeltsin.

    i'll check c-span on the base cable while i'm on duty tomorrow and see if they replay it.

    thanks
