And You Thought You Needed Kahlua to Make a White Russian

Filed under: Politics,Russia — The Professor @ 9:20 am

Vladimir Putin gettin’ down with some Russian Eminem wannabes.  This brings to mind Ben Folds’ “Zak and Sara”:

she saw the lights
she saw a pale english face
some strange machines repeating beats and thumping bass
visions of pills that put you in a loving trance
that make it possible for all white boys to dance

And where did they find all the short kids to stand next to Putin?

And catch this hilarious quote:

“And breakdance is something peculiar,” he said. “This really is propaganda for a healthy lifestyle because it is hard to imagine breakdancing having anything to do with drinking and dope,” Putin said.

Yeah, really hard to imagine.

  1. He actually looks embarrassed and uncomfortable! Precious! So much for his cool-tough-dude-can-handle-any-situation image. And who picked out those “hip hop” clothes for him? His granny? Then again, I’m not sure that the people who make real hip hop would necessarily recognize what these Russians are doing.

    Yup, breakdancers are pure as the driven snow! No drugs or alcohol there for sure! Hilarious! This man is so out of touch with reality his name might as well be Brezhnev. But it doesn’t matter, of course, because whoever doesn’t respect you, you just shoot them.

    I guess putting on a tough guy image is too difficult for Obama. He seems rather pliant going to China to be lectured sternly on fiscal responsibility. Not that China is in great shape… still he seems to give away too much too easily.

    SWP should author the sequel to Prince and send it to Obama 😀

  3. Some communities are jockeying to host Gitmo detainees…Found that interesting.

    Btw, the news of food shortages is rather alarming. Why dont these people cook at home?

  4. What, for the love of God, does #2 or #3 have to do with this post???

    Once again, another bit of Russophile rubbish has vomited on this fine blog and disgraced the image of Russia before the slack-jawed world.
