  1. Couldn’t agree more with Cathy,s accessment. My family members still in Russia say they are all very pessimistic about Putin’s politics. All TV channels are now under state control – and people are listening to a few remaining independent radiostations (like “Echo of Moscow”) and expect them to go off the airwaves any day…

  2. Am I the only one amused that John McCain — of McCain-Feingold fame — is the one DEFENDING big business funding politicians?
