Turnover

In the US, the presidency goes from Democrat to Republican to Democrat to Republican, and so on.

In Ukraine it goes from a Russian speaker, to a Ukrainian speaker, to a Russian speaker, and so on.

In Russia, the country’s leadership passes from a bald guy, to a hairy one, to a bald one, and so on. Go back to the last tsar, and you’ll see how it works out.

In Spain, it goes from a corrupt guy to a corrupt guy to… OK, it doesn’t work.

I’m at the airport waiting for a connection flight and trying not to engage in public displays of grief, so I’m firing off posts to keep myself distracted.
