Despite widespread protests and international condemnation over his authoritarian policies, Vladimir Putin is back to his unrelenting efforts at self-aggrandizement and deification. His aides have organized national celebration of Putin turning 60 this week with fawning politicians like St. Petersburg Governor Georgy Poltavchenko proclaiming “Your name is a symbol of a wise politician and a strong leader in Russia and the world.” Yeah, that’s how the world views Putin. In Moscow, an exhibition dedicated to Putin is running at the art center entitled “A Man of the Kindest Soul.” Nevertheless, even if Putin has not succeeded in winning over the world or freedom loving Russians, he has appeared to win over Russian women: one in five Russian women say they want to marry the wannabe dictator. Who needs eHarmony when you can land the perfect dictator on eTyranny?
Of course, when the other available male looks like the guy to the right, Putin looks a lot better for a movie and some late night borscht.
A survey by independent pollster Levada reported that 20 percent of Russian women say they would like to marry him. Heck, even Orthodox Russian priests cannot keep their hands off of him.
I would love to see his online dating profile: “60yo white m looking for attractive fm who is into political domination and does not need free speech. Loves faking archeological digs, naturalist feats, and other impressive displays of machismo.” Putin already has the shirtless pictures ready for posting.
I suppose this proves the adage that women tend to go for the bad boys. . . in this case a liberty-stripping, protest crushing egomaniac.
Kudos to Elaine M for the video

I think I see why women love him. he is a writer.
Let’s get Romney into this discussion: (1) Russian women like Putin, but Romney does not; (2) American women are not too crazy about Romney’s Republican party and their positions on women’s issues and (fill in the blanks)…
You’re funny. Have you ever considered not acting like a tough, macho, paternalistic, condescending and sanctimonious douche bag who used bluster, insults and really weak attempts at intimidation instead of offering reasoned and evidence based counterarguments when faced with criticism and/or questions? Like you are right now for example?
As for any apology you might owe, it would be to the forum in general.
Wow Gene, have you considered therapy or maybe just anger management. To whom do I apologize, King Gene? I know you see yourself as the alpha male and have marked this blog as your fiefdom. But, you don’t have the temperment to lead.
For a guy who’s so smart, and that’s enormously important to you, you don’t have any insight in youself. Can’t you see I threw that bait out there just to see who would hit on it? That was my “reading” whomever replied. You hit it in 2 minutes! You sure carry a grudge pretty long, that’s just not healthy. Again, that’s where therapy might help. I really don’t want to have continual battles w/ you. It’s tedious.
Perhaps Levada needs to administer a few well-designed questionnaires to Putin’s prospective brides. I’d like to know, for instance:
I would like to Marry Putin because:
(a) It look to me like he is occasionally awake;
(b) I could den to live in real house and heff also my own bett-room;
(c) My bicycle vuss stolen;
(d) I am very tired to heff sex and my present husband always come pestering to me for more sex, more sex;
(e) How else I can be able to meet Bill Clinton?
(f) This look to me like very funny answer;
(g) We chevv deez florz, ant dey chevv pettulz, ant I poool outt feerst one ant den two ant den I keeponn pooolink ant it say I vill to merry Putin I vill NOT to merry Putin I VILL to merry Putin I vill NOT to merry Putin ant it come up so zet I VILL to merry Putin, so zets how it goes. 😉
(h) All of zee aboff.
I’m sure it is. In theory anyway.
So any time you’d care to apologize for entering this forum like a tough, macho, paternalistic, condescending and sanctimonious douche bag who used bluster, insults and really weak attempts at intimidation instead of offering reasoned and evidence based counterarguments when faced with criticism and/or questions?
I’m sure we’re all just waiting on pins and needles to be dazzled by your direct sincerity.
Gene, When I apologize there’s no “close” involved. It is direct and sincere.
Eww..I’d rather eat ground glass. And, if I wanted to marry pasty white, I’d marry mahself.
