Vlad the Vote Rigger

The Guardian has an excellent piece up on the vote rigging tactics to be employed by the Vladimir Putin oligarchy in Sunday’s Russian presidential election.

The World is seeing a retreat from true democracy in favor of phony and spun elections.  Time magazine did us all a favor by shining a bright light on Putin and the dangers a man like Putin portends for the world.  It’s up to the rest of us to call out those like Putin who are the enemies of constitutional democracies.

    What exactly would be the difference between what Putin is doing and what Karl Rove did for the first 4 yrs of the Bush Admin when he was sending members of his political team into govt agencies to demand fealty to Bush and fervent efforts to re-elect him?

    And the answer is because the KGB/FSB is a secret shadow government very much like the CIA. In fact they are so secret that you can’t tell them apart.

    There’s no place for either of them in a “public” republic, but your point is certainly well taken!

    Thanks.
