A New Low for Vladimir Putin
There’s a reason this editorial appears, unlike any of its predecessors, last in our lineup of posts in today’s issue. In it, we’re going to report on behavior so vile and obscene that it demeans our blog to have to do so. Its position indicates our shame, on behalf of Russia.
We thought Vladimir Putin’s repeated interviews by the doddering imbecile of CNN Larry King, whose unwatched show is now defunct, represented the pit of shameless propaganda to which Putin could sink, but we were very wrong. There was still Naomi Campbell.
That’s right, supermodel Naomi Campbell, one of the great airheads of the modern age. With King no more, Putin decided — in the wake of one of Russia’s greatest national tragedies, the Domodedovo airport bombing — to favor Campbell with an interview for publication in GQ magazine.
Yet, ironically, it may be that Campbell coaxed out of Putin the most revealing information the world has yet learned about this malignant troll who is laying waste to Russia as surely as if he were Stalin.
I like the girls a lot, they’re beautiful. The girls in the erotic calendar were courageous and they were not scared. As student journalists, they couldn’t fail to understand what might have been said to them after doing this. Nonetheless, they were not deterred and did the calendar anyway. So, frankly, that’s what I liked the most.
Putin was talking about the young scantily clad “journalism” students who made a calendar praising his dictatorial regime and declaring their desire to have sex with him at his bidding.
The amazing drivel that poured forth from Putin’s mouth at the worst and most inappropriate time possible reveals Putin for the vacuous and callous bastard he truly is. His rank cowardice in choice of “interviewer” betrays his entirely appropriate lack of confidence in his ability to parry the questions of an intelligent, seasoned journalist.
How is this possible? How could Putin possibly have managed his affairs with such appalling stupidity that a ridiculous, offensive “interview” like this could appear on the pages of a foreign publication when the dead of Domodedovo are not even cold in their graves? His actions add insult to injury, the echo the unfeeling, oblivious acts of Soviet dictators, and they cry out for his removal from power.
It’s to say nothing, of course, of the amazingly inappropriate, un-presidential remarks themselves, which show Putin brazenly babbling like a schoolboy about the gross sexual behavior of young students. We are reminded of Putin’s previous appalling act of pulling up the shirt of a young boy on the street and kissing him on the stomach. It seems this man has no morals, no shame, and no reason to fear any kind of popular retribution.
If Russia is to have any hope of a future, this reptile must recede into Russia’s past as quickly as possible.
