Times OnlineKremlin dusts off Cold War lexicon to make US villain in Georgia
Charles Bremner in Moscow
Russians were told over breakfast yesterday what really happened in Georgia: the conflict in South Ossetia was part of a plot by Dick Cheney, the Vice-President, to stop Barak Obama being elected president of the United States.
The line came on the main news of Vesti FM, a state radio station that — like the Government and much of Russia's media — has reverted to the old habits of Soviet years, in which a sinister American hand was held to lie behind every conflict, especially those embarrassing to Moscow. Modern Russia may be plugged into the internet and the global marketplace but in the battle for world opinion the Kremlin is replaying the old black-and-white movie.

Way to go Poland!
Then again, for all I know, that's where the Chairman found the link.
I can imagine the sheer pride the Great Red Square must be feeling this week, seeing his Motherland finally standing up to the abuses it has suffered this past decade or so, from imperialist nations surrounding it. The motherland has shown great patience as it has from the glorious Revolution to the present.
Marshal PupovichI can imagine the sheer pride the Great Red Square must be feeling this week, seeing his Motherland finally standing up to the abuses it has suffered this past decade or so, from imperialist nations surrounding it.
I thought Comrade Red Square was from Ukraine. No big deal, though. Moscow news services report how the Bush regime is trying to provoke war between Ukraine and Russia, which may lead to the motherland needing to defend herself in Ukraine too. At the same time, nuking Poland out of self-defense. I'm glad to read various leftist bloggers are on our side in placing the blame on the U.S. imperialism!
Marshal PupovichIFP... You mean the Mime's bunker, Impeach For Peace or something like that?
How did you get promoted to Marshal and not be certain of the meaning of IFP? I've always suspected you received that promotion under false pretenses. Now I'm convinced.
Maybe IFP stands for Insidious Fraudulent Pupovich!
What did you think I meant? Illustrated Filthy Pornography? Icky Flying Poop?
Come to think of it, either one of those would describe the Mime's hole perfectly.
It is a tough and dirty job being Marshal Pupovich, but damn it, someone has to do it.
Quote:Hey, wait a fat minute! Didn't Pupovich just get promoted to Vice Chairman? And now he wants to be General Secretary? And he's being promoted to Marshal?
What about me? I bust my buns for The Party around here, and what do I get? "Here, Pinkie, I found you a real nice guy in a red hat. He enjoys digging long ditches at sunset." They're all losers after only one thing--my vodka ration card!
I might add that I'm not the one currently measuring the Empress for her cut-out. That's the work of a certain furry, four legged commissar/vice chairman/general secretary-wannabe-but-might-begrudgingly-settle-for-marshal. Plus he keeps letting the Criminally Insane Vodkov off the hook, when he should have had his show trial months ago.
Pupovich gets nervous at everything I do. Every time I come up with a new movement and/or cause, he trembles and glances around and says stuff like, "I don't know about this, Commissarka, I don't want to lose the desk in the corner office suite we share." Always trying to dissuade me from my glorious movements--wait a minute, that sounded weird--my--well, he just never thinks my ideas are well thought out. He's like Jiminy Cricket. Maybe you could give him a top hat and umbrella, and promote him to Jiminy Pupovich.
In fact, you might say he's like one of those digitally lobotomized yada yada 19 percenters (sorry, my carpal mime syndrome is flaring up again, can't type it all out).
Moreover, he's been denounced several times--once he even denounced himself.
On the plus side, he did save me when Zampolit shot me off the ledge and I landed on that flagpole. And he did inspire the notion of the Trojan Donkey. But I took credit for it, dammit!
I also awarded him Pinkie's Prestigious Beet of the Week Award, simply because he was feeling unappreciated. Talk about your overdeveloped sense of entitlement! But good feel-good Progressive that I am, I gave it to him.
In the meantime, look at all the initiatives I've initiated in recent months--making up an extensive list of Bush's crimes, my "perch-in" on the ledge, the People's Vigilante Committee, and Project Giant Trojan Donkey that's full of condoms for all the boys and girls at the convention in Denver. Why, I've done more to raise awareness and show how much I care than anyone else here!
What have the rest of you done? Anything? Anything at all?
P.S. Only I don't wanna be a marshal. I can just hear some smart-aleck like Betinov putting on his whiny Jan Brady voice and chanting, "Marshal, Marshal, MARSHAL!" every time I enter the bunker.
It has become my understanding that Georgia was going to shut off the pipeline to the West depriving oil for the making of grease paint for mimes, first and foremost!
Then other things like making tires for a Prius, soles for Birkenstocks, and a base for patchouli oil! Think of all the poor Folsom Street Fair goers without their K-Y, it will be rough trade for everybody!
Thank you Putin for keeping the pipeline open!
Comrades! Let's make this The Second Great Patriotic War!
Noble Laika, Hero Dog of the SovietsThink of all the poor Folsom Street Fair goers without their K-Y, it will be rough trade for everybody!
It is my understanding that Michael Milken has formed a joint venture to put the carborundom which will no longer be needed for the Hildo Hydra 7.1 into the K-Y for the Folsom Street Fair.
This must be taxed at the old capital-gains tax rate or the people will revolt.
A box a day. Easy.
