Reasonable and Effective

The vice-president of Russia is asked in an interview, “Are there any structural changes our government could undertake to deal with the current economic crisis?”

“The most reasonable thing to do,” says Putin ‘ s right-hand man, “would be to close down all schools*. That would be most effective. But our people are not ready for that yet. They are just not ready.”

This is not a joke. This is from an actual interview. Tell your favorite Leftie friend about the beautiful regime he’s supporting**.

* “Schools” doesn’t mean colleges in Russia. This word refers solely to primary and secondary education.

** For some mysterious reason, I haven’t encountered any Liberal women who are Putinoids. Only Leftist men worship him. It’s a weird psychosexual mystery.

  1. Do the men of the pseudo left buy into that image of the horse-riding, judo playing athletic macho man? I wonder why they don’t attempt to become that man themselves instead of looking for those qualities in remoteness.

    1. The macho man is 5 feet 3 inches tall, wears high heels to compensate, and has had more Botox operation than anybody in Russia. But yes, he is a beacon of manliness to men on both sides of the political spectrum.

      1. Really? That would explain a lot. Short men either tend to be jokesters or they overcompensate in the extreme with belligerence. Alas, human growth hormone doesn’t always have the effects you’d wish. Look at Illinois. :p

    Because schools cost so much? Can you link and / or explain?
    I can’t believe that.

      • Yes, exactly. They are already closing down the free clinics and firing the doctors by the thousand. Schools are the logical next step.

      This was a TV interview between the vice-president and Vladimir Soloviev, one of the most famous TV journalists in Russia. There is an article that retells parts of the interview: http://www.kasparov.ru/material.php?id=54D07196A63D1

      • I meant Liberal women. This is somebody who worked for Goldman Sachs. And that company os as anti-Liberal as it gets.

    Angry overcompensating men who keep hearing this song in their heads are exhausting to prop up and deal with at best, and dangerous at worst.
