To the befuddlement of many, including the Moscow Times which called it “bizarre”, Putin drew a picture of a cat’s ass on a white board on a visit to a classroom in the Kurgan region.
It’s not bizarre at all, if you understand Putin. Remember Obama’s remark about Putin behaving like a “bored schoolboy”? Well, what do bored schoolboys do? They doodle. They doodle crude things.
This is Putin’s way of giving the finger to Obama. ”Yeah. I’m a bored schoolboy. So what? What are you, punk?”
Isn’t this obvious? Isn’t it quite consistent with Putin’s crazed, egomaniacal, confrontational personality?
Oh. St. Petersburg will be loads of fun. Just loads.
