Election update (no, not our election)
Well, this isn't bad: the "missing" Russian presidential candidate has surfaced in Ukraine, alive and apparently well, surprised by all the fuss his unscheduled absence had caused:
The ITAR-Tass news agency quoted the head of his campaign staff, Kseniya Ponomareva, as saying that Rybkin "called me, saying that he had had pleasantly spent four days in Kiev and did not understand what all this hysteria was about."Why exactly he took off to Kiev for four days without telling his wife or anyone on his staff is his own business, of course; perhaps, rather than sleeping with the fishes, he was only drinking like one...
So: He's alive. Good.
The three other politicians I mentioned in yesterday's post are still dead. Not good.
("One of these politicians you've been accused of liquidating is not like the others, three of these politicians are kind of the same...")
