6 More Years!!! 6 More Years!!!

Vladimir Putin won an overwhelming victory yesterday by taking 76% of the vote in the Russian Presidential election.  The victory means that Putin will be either Head of Government (Prime Minister 2008-2012) or Head of State ( President 2000-2008, 2012-2024) of the Russian government for 24 straight years.  While Americans may frown upon this, two things are worth noting:

  1. At 76%, they have a clear consensus.
  2. At least they held the election on a Sunday, so everyone who wanted to pledge their allegiance to President Putin wouldn’t have to miss work.

Please don’t hack us, Comrades!
