George Will to the rescue

Moscow’s municipal elections are in two days, so the government is stepping up its efforts to get out the vote. The solution? More quotes from American political figures. Before, we had Thomas Jefferson. Today, George Will.

Yes, today, I stumbled upon a get-out-the-vote ad quoting George Will, “political observer.” Apparently, the man who finally took a stand against the creeping denimization of America is just the man Russia needs to rouse its sleeping civic muster.

    About Me

    Hi! I am a journalist who, for reasons of sentimentality and an abiding fascination with the absurd, decided to live and work in Russia for a year just as the country vies with Somalia for Most Un-Safest Spot for Journalists in the World. I will blog in a death-defying manner, dear reader. That is a promise.
