Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Vladimir Putin

He's a douchebag.

All right, an actual rant for Scooter's rant blog! Party time! Ok, I am admittedly ignorant when it comes to the inner working of the Russian government. I know who Vladimir Putin is, and I know that he has given the reins of the presidency of the Russian Federation to his protege, Dmitry Medvedev. I also know that he's fantastically wealthy.

That's about it. I don't know how Putin spends his days, I don't know what his experiences were like when he was growing up... I just don't know the man on a personal, intimate level. However... there is one fact that stands out to me over all others. He divorced his wife of 25 years in order to marry a 25 year old former olympic gymnast, whom he helped get elected into the Russian parliament.

That, friends, is the act of a complete and utter douchebag. Indeed, I bet if he ever went shopping in New York, he would buy like six or seven Abercrombie and Fitch shirts.

Seriously... he is a super duper douchebag.

I agree with you there.

Not to mention the dirty, elusive non-threats towards cold war. "Nobody wants a cold war."

Why even bring that shit up?

Seriously, sometimes it almost feels so high school I just want to go, "shit up Putin, no one is talking to you".

P.S. Damn has he ever aged...

Yeah but can you imagine what that 25 year old gymnast can do in bed?
