Putin Again

Laurence Vance, March 06, 2007

Regarding Putin, NPR ran an anti-Putin story today in which it was stated:

“Parliament is now dominated by a pro-Putin majority that speeds through Kremlin-issued legislation, often too quickly for deputies even to read new bills.”

I don’t know why this is so objectionable. Substitute Congress for “Parliament,” pro-Bush for “pro-Putin,” and Bush administration-issued for “Kremlin-issued” and you have a perfect picture of the U.S. government under Republican rule. Although I realize that the Democrats are no better, thank God for the “regime change” we had in November. And no, I am no fan of Putin (or any world leader), but at least he didn’t send 150,000 Russian troops to Iraq.
