Hold On. This Will Be A Bumpy Ride.

Photo-shopped, but in the one picture/thousand words category, this does well to sum up the relationship between Vladimir Putin and our own Obama, particularly as the world sees them in comparison (click):

Passed along by Gerard Vanderleun.  And incidentally, it's been a while since I spent a good amount of time in the saddle (and none on a Mongolian pony), but Putin's grip on the reins seems a bit severe.  Maybe some control issues?

Our press jokes about the photo events that are staged for Putin's benefit, but they miss the point that for the Russians and a good number of other people in the world, it works.

Comments are welcome and discussion is open and encouraged. I expect that there will be some occasional disagreement (heaven knows why) or welcome clarification and embellishment, and such are freely solicited.

Consider that all such comments are in the public domain and are expected to be polite, even while contentious. I will delete comments which are ad hominem, as well as those needlessly profane beyond the realm of sputtering incredulity in reaction to some inanity, unless attributed to a quote.

Links to other sources are fine so long as they further the argument or expand on the discussion. All such comments and links are the responsibility of the commenter, and the mere presence herein does not necessarily constitute my agreement.

I will also delete all comments that link to a commercial site.
