The anticipation has been driving this bitch crazy. Between the polling…the posturing to the media…the interviews and debates followed by more interviews…and then the pundit’s speculation…ugh!
But finally…at last, damn it…we have some results.
Mmmhmmm, in Russia’s Presidential election. Well, actually it was more of a sorta-election.
Dmitri Medvedev sailed to a ‘it’s over…shut up, kneel and respect my authority’ victory becoming the third President of the Russian Federation.
President Vladimir Putin is expected to become Prime Minister thus finalizing a smooth non-transfer of power.
Despite attempts to mount challenges to The Chosen One, the opposition never gained traction and the election was a blow out. Well, c’mon now...this election was a done deal before the deal was even a vague though in Vlad’s clever Russian mind.
This bitch remembers the glorious hues of liberty our government cast a post Soviet Russia in. There was to be freedom and democracy and a chicken in every pot for the Russian people and that was supposed to result in happiness and joy throughout that part of the world.
Now, Russia is finalizing the results of a faux election fronted by big money in order to perpetuate an economic system set up to dominate the masses and benefit the few.
That's almost enough to make a bitch nostalgic for glasnost.
