  1. Well, for what’s it worth, here is my two cents:

    Of course, as far as faces go, Medvedev is for sure, more ‘handsome’ than Putin. But Medvedev is also, a somewhat short man, as was noted by news media who were covering Medvedev’s recent visit to the U.S. and more especially when he was standing next to Barack Hussein Obama. Of course, physical beauty or not, is not what matters, (i.s. Joseph Stalin was …handsome!) but rather, when? how? will Russia and it’s people, ever! become truly free and truly prosperous, and no longer a threat to the rest of the world.
    Happy Independence Day, America!
    May the land and people of Russia, someday, also celebrate their independence from these hangover neo-soviet gangster criminals who are ruining them and their country, these super rich of the earth.

      So, in the US you just celebrated THIS type of independence, right?

      • To Comrade ‘Cheezeburger’ (your new moniker-?)
        You are a total idiot, and your second attack of the day, also wacky as your first, no wonder it was removed.
        You quote our President Bush, out of context, for one error.
        Happy Fourth of July, America!
        Russia needs it’s own war of independence from the KGB Putin gang in Moscow.

        • To Pogromshik,

          you are an EXPONENTIAL idiot. A good sample of American idiots, your president G.W. Bush once said:
          “I’m telling you there’s an enemy that would like to attack America, Americans, again. There just is. That’s the reality of the world. And I wish him all the very best.”

          Curious George.

        • IT is ironic how the US in one of the safest location around the world and yet so paranoid, like Stalin was, could this be showing signs of a new era of military dictatorship in the US, the defence budget grows and grows each year, faster than inflation. And yet Afghanistan exports their drugs in quantities tens of times bigger before the Americans came there, and a lion’s share of those are heading into Russia, one of the closest states, while Russian funding for guard control is quite low.

  2. And, of course too:

    What the cartoonist is saying here, is that Putin may be worried as to who is more…. popular…. with the Russian masses, or at least, with the real power-elite: himself, or Medvedev, and if he can keep Medvedev (& the entire KGB ruled RF governmental apparatus) fully under his own control, and thus stay in power, or…..loose out to his rivals.
    From recent reports coming out of Russia, Putin still has his admirers, at least among the masses, but he appears to be slipping.
    Maybe, if Putin has to quickly exit Russia, (hopefully, not on an Areoflot plane!), one of these days, his friend, B.H. Obama, could put him in an empty room in the White House?…or…the both of them, hand in hand, take a long long vacation down in sunny Venezuela?
    One can dream, can’t one?

  3. Psalomschick, you should consider visiting eBay to buy a sense of humour and a brain, even if in used condition.

    This cartoon is not about Putin wondering if he is better looking than Medvedev or not. It is about Putin wondering if he is more popular with the Russian voters than Medvedev, and if he will be able to defeat Medvedev in the 2012 elections.

    • This may not help Pogromsshik as he needs too many brain cards (even second-hand) to start thinking rather than singing.

    • Psalomshik needs a brain patch, there are too many bugs there, it’s like Windows Vista.

  4. to ‘VofR’,
    I believe that my second comment (which you may not have read before you made your comment-?) does essentially say the same analysis that you make here: that Putin is worried if he is….more popular…with the masses (and their votes…IF their votes are ever really counted anyway-?), than Medvedev. But of course, he has to also be very concerned with those who hold the real reigns of power, (which is not the ‘voters’), and who just might turn against him.So, you and I have about the same interpretation of the cartoonist’s essential intended meaning, behind his comedy drawing.
    But, the old Fairy-Tale saying, of: “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?” is the context of this cartoon. ‘Fairest’, in it’s general meaning in English, means, ‘most beautiful’, or ‘best looking’, but it could also mean, ‘the best’, I suppose. At any rate, cartoonists as with other literary figures, have a wide range of freedom to express what they want to, in any language or culture.
    And too, remember the immortal words of Joseph Stalin about voting: “It doesn’t matter WHO votes, but only who COUNTS the votes!”.
    Happy Fourth of July!

  5. My final dosvedaniyeh to Cheezeburger, and his comrade, Konstantin:
    If you can’t say anything more intelligent, except silly personal attacks, why do you bother?
    There are more intelligent people who read this blog, than you are aware of, and goofy off-topic comments and your ad hominem personal slanders, as your’s, only show how unintelligent and uncultured you are, in any language.
    You didn’t even pretend to comment on the cartoon.
    I refuse to sink to your low level, pals.
    The Serbsky Institute has rooms for your types.
    But, thanks for the laughs.
    Ha! Ha! Ha!
