Exactly when does this get embarrassing for Russians? The latest installment of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s attempt to morph into a Russian action hero occurred with the start of the election campaign for United Russia Pary when he drove a Harley through the street. I hear the bike actually runs on his own excreted testosterone, which his Russian handlers insist is 100 times more powerful than that of a professional wrestler half is age and 10 times greater than a grizzly bear.
Putin, 58, of course, was dressed to kill in black astride a three-wheeled Harley.
For civil libertarians, the obvious effort to create a cult of personality around Putin is worrisome given his record of quashing dissent and encouraging harsh measures against demonstrators.

Didn’t Mussolini do stunts like this?
My monitor said to thank you for the coffee spray. My nose? Not so much.
per Brando: “I don’t make no deals with no cops.”
He doesn’t always drink beer, but when he does, it’s Dos Equis.
putin has been known to impregnate women just by saying hello
All that and now he is on his way to retrieve the diamonds from the outer planet and the water from the asteroids. I suppose he will find the lost city of Atlantis soon and win the Triple Crown. More like what a clown.
great links. I would love to see Cheney and his minions doing the perp walk.
You said it best.
As far as nations competing for most embarrassing leader status, what about American champion Dick Cheney blathering about the beauty of torture in public?
Even Libyan government officials, who provided an education, health care, zero interest home loans, 14 cent per gallon gasoline, $50,000 to newlyweds, etc. at no cost to their citizens, would not brag about the goodness of torture like Cheney.
Russia is a piker compared to the champ Cheney.
“The current killing spree of Russian dissidents is, in part, an attempt to silence criticisms of these crimes. Anna Politkovskaya was a journalist – one of the greatest of our time – who travelled to Chechnya to expose the mass torture and slaughter by Russian troops there. She believed that Chechnya was a test-bed for tyranny that was spreading back across Russia itself, leading to “the re-establishment of the Soviet Union”. As if to prove her point, first she was poisoned. She survived. Then she was shot dead in the lift shaft of her apartment block. ”
Let’s not forget Putin & Bush:
You’d never catch Brando riding a trike.
Speaking of Cheney…
Ex-Bush Official Col. Lawrence Wilkerson: “I Am Willing To Testify” If Dick Cheney Is Put On Trial
“For civil libertarians, the obvious effort to create a cult of personality around Putin is worrisome given his record of quashing dissent and encouraging harsh measures against demonstrators.”
It is no problem creating a culture icon, so long as your Putin him first……
Kind of like the Bush Crime Family…..
Did anyone catch Cheney last night….
