Hey Obama, open up that front shoulder a little more…jeez. Just terrible technique here by the POTUS. Look Obama, you’re the coolest kid on the block. Everyone knows it, but you suck at sports. overtime I look up Obama is embarrassing himself by trying to be athletic. He’s either playing basketball in sweat pants, or taking diggers in Hawaii, or laying bricks with the Globe Trotters. You’re blowing your cover man. Pretty soon everyone is going to know that you’re half white. That’s the last thing you need going into the election.

(Business Insider)–Given the smoke and mirrors that seem to be de rigueur in Russian politics (not to mention the sincere Russian love of conspiracy theories), it was inevitable that someone would look deeper at Mikhail Prokhorov’s election bid and find something fishy about it. Talking to Gazeta.ru, Stanislav Belkovsky, a political analyst and associate of Boris Berezovsky, argues that Prokhorov’s intentions are not to beat Vladimir Putin in next year’s presidential elections, but to placate Russia’s angry middle classes by giving the impression of choice, and to then take Dimitry Medvedev’s place as Prime Minister of the country.
Here’s a Google-translated version of his comments:
“After the rally at the Bolotnaya area, when it became clear that the urban educated class went against the government and does not hide its position, the Kremlin puts Prokhorov in order to neutralize the energy of this protest, that we all have expired sweet saliva on what a good candidate is nominated the presidency “
While we have no idea whether this is true (and it seems foolish not to question Belkovsky’s intentions too), there are a few issues swirling around Prokhorov that do invite curiosity.For one, the timing of the announcement seems, at best, inopportune. Alexander Rahr, the director of the Russia-Eurasia Program at the German Council on Foreign Relations, told Russia Today that the oligarch has little real chance of really entering the race, let alone winning, at this point. “I doubt that Prokhorov will get enough followers,” Rahr said. “He needs a party, he needs a movement. He has the money to conduct a campaign, but he needs the people who will operate for him.” Prokhorov’s exit from Right Cause, a pro-business party, earlier this year was a little confusing, to say the least. At first Prokhorov denied criticisms that the party was a pro-Kremlin device designed to capture middle class votes in the Duma. Then he said the Kremlin had infiltrated it. Then he quit, calling the entire thing a “farce”. And then there’s the possible links to Former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin, who announced that he and Prokhorov were considering forming a new party this afternoon. Kudrin, who left the Russian government in acrimony this summer, is seen as close to Putin and had been considered a possible Prime Minister himself until some kind of internal power struggle forced him out.
I mean this is just down right diabolical. Putin works in political corruption like Picaso worked in oils. When his term limits were up, he simply just created a new position higher than President. Then said “meh, fuck it…I think I will just be president again…without an election”. Now some people in Russia are a little bit salty…so what does old slick Vladdy do…oh just get a billionaire oil tycoon to fake run for president. Let people think they have a choice, then just stay President because all Prokhorov cares about is getting Dwight Howard to the Nets. Prokhorov has like no political experience. This could never happen in America. Can you imagine if Obama had it set up so he could campaign against some guy who had no political experience, or maybe somebody that divorved his wife while she was dying of cancer, or a guy who openly hates gays, or a guy who …I mean Obama would be thrilled. Instead he is going to have a real battle on his hands against….well…shit. Obama swag for the win.
PS: All joking aside…the Republican field for president is pathetic. There is one really good candidate that NOBODY is paying attention to…John Huntsman. Just a dream resume. No candidate is perfect, but this guy is easily the best of the bunch. Oh and…he has hot daughters(Especially Abby)…just saying.
People were making this storm out to be Hurricane Katrina’s evil twin. It was going to flood Washington DC, turn New York into sea world, and just completely wash away Boston. Hurricane Irene didn’t account for one thing though…Obama swag. Obama just stared that bitch right in the eyes and told her to leave his vacation alone. Before you knew it America was winning the Little League World Series and Irene coward away like the little tropical storm that she was. You hurricanes might have been able to pull that shit on Bush, but no weather fronts are destroying cities on Obama’s watch.

For about 90 seconds of this video I forgot all about the troubles in the world. I was just enjoying watching this ninja dog do things a cat would be too pussy(PUN) to even dream of. Then guess what…turns out this dog is Russian. Obama is just soaking up the sun, chilling on the beach in his mom jeans at Martha’s Vineyard right now, and he has NO IDEA Vlad Putin has dogs that can infiltrate Fort Knox right. In case you guys didn’t notice, the Cold War is back.
PS: I don’t think this is the first time Russia has used kick ass dogs to do counter-intelligence work against the United States. I am like 99% sure Clifford The Big Red Dog was 100% KGB. That dog was everywhere when I was kid, then the Berlin wall comes down, USSR falls apart, and suddenly he’s gone. He and that little minx Emily Elizabeth(if that’s her real name) got out of here before we figured out what was actually going on.
