1: Vlad the Impaler

Today is Sunday, 7 October 2007.

Stay tuned: later today, musings on this 6th anniversary of the USA/UK attack on Afghanistan.

But your autuer, a long-time supporter of Soviet dissidents, says: Let’s start the day out right.

Soviet … oops! … Russian dictator Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin (ex-KGB Soul-Mate of George W. Bush (“I looked into his eyes … I saw his soul”) and Butcher of Chechnya) was born on this date in 1952.

How better to wish V. V. Putin felicitations than to paraphrase what Richard Daley, mayor of Chicago, shouted at Senator (D, CT) Abraham A. Ribicoff, at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, when Ribicoff nominated George McGovern for President, with the words, "If George McGovern were president, we wouldn’t have these Gestapo tactics in the streets of Chicago", and Daley shouted, his microphone turned off, but his lips readable: “Fuck you, you [Daley said “Jew”, I say “Nazi”] motherfucker, fuck you”.
