As expected, Israel elected the war criminal as prime minister. Oh good. And Barak announces that he is leaving politics. From his performance in this election, I think we all thought he left politics weeks ago. You know your "democracy" is in trouble when the only choice is between two former generals.
Putin will re-merge the bits of the old KGB that Yeltsin
split into separate organizations. Oh good. And he fired that regional governor who faked the heart attack. Evidently he couldn't keep the electricity on in Vladivostok. Hear that Gray Davis! I assume that was your fault that KQED was off the air during the first half hour of Masterpiece Theatre--now this is personal!
