It’s all local…

A lot of people (myself included) who have been following the Russian presidential election have been focusing on Putin’s clear victory and whether the protest movement can sustain itself over time.  At the local level, at least, the opposition seems to have picked up some seats in the municipal elections.

Now that the serious info. is covered, here’s a picture slide show of Putin looking like a bad ass!  Go, Personality Cult!  Thanks go out to one of the students who sent this on.

A picture from the slide show: He runs a giant country, is a martial arts expert and a marksman, drives race cars, kisses puppies, pilots fighter jets, and sings. Love or hate him, that's a pretty impressive resume!
