Kommunists Over Florida
I was looking for something intelligent to say about the recent Russian Duma elections besides ну и что (Nu i shto) , a Russian phrase that means so what, when I came across this article on the KPRF (Communist Party of the Russian Federation) website noting the fact that one of their members, Yuri Yugov took part in the world's largest acrobatic parachute jump over Florida on November 22nd . Molodyets! and nice T-shirt. While taking part in the disputed Russian elections the Russian communists could not help but note that the U.S. has lost any credibility commenting about anyone's elections after the shenanigans of the last major elections in this country. With more than a little irony they cite an article by Mark Almond who comments on the "dirty games" in Florida and Ohio which discredit America's ability to teach anyone about democracy. Communists or Republicans jumping into Florida which could be worse?
