Ukraine etc.

Hey gang,

A good article from the NY Times (did I just write that?) about Putin and the USSR, I mean Russia and Vladimir Putin, from Nicholas Kristof. I mean, catch this clause, “…A fascist Russia is better than a Communist Russia. Communism was a failed economic system…”

Ladies and gentlemen, what will they report next at the grey lady?

My only quibble is that I don’t see Putin as a right winger. Maybe a fascist, but not of the right wing variety. I don’t think the left-right spectrum works on a guy like Putin, who grew up a good communist and worked for the KGB.
