Re-Elect This Man President

This is pretty awesome.  For more on Putin, see here and here.  For the logic behind the invasion of Georgia, see here.  The argument is that Russia is staving off demographic decline through promoting friendly minority groups in neighboring countries and re-Russifying them.  Rumor has it that one of the reasons that the Yukos chairman was sent to prison is that he wore a polo-neck sweater to the Kremlin instead of a coat and tie.
