Kuzio’s getting even lazier

Революція в Киргизстані. Те саме чекає й Україну?

No text added by Kuzio.  Perhaps because his headline captures all the necessary stupidity.


Sorry, Mr. Lucas: the Finns didn’t listen to your podcast

April 7, 2010

In a post I wrote some time back (here), I had a laugh at the amazing ability to take the clear “no” of Finland’s Foreign Minister and turn it – without any basis whatsoever – into a qualified “yes” regarding NATO.

And now the Finns have gone and pissed on Ed’s Corn Flakes again.

Given Edward’s semantic talent, I fully expect his next “Europe View” column for The Economist to welcome Finland into the Alliance.

Mao-Maoing all things Russian

Is it me, or is “La Russophobe” tipping ever more into Maoist verbiage?

Who/whatever LR is, it’s always good for a laugh!


Speaking of non sequiturs…

Despite the claims of Cyber Cossack, where in this article is there even the slightest mention of Ukrainians?

It must take some doing to be outraged by the non-existent.

Amended election law and hysteria – am I missing something?

February 5, 2010

Cats are out of bags, living with dogs and raining down but – for the life of me – I can’t see what all the fuss is about.

OK – changing an election law this close to the election itself is goofy, but it is Ukraine we’re talking about, where political goofiness is the order of the day.

Still, what is the problem?  As I understand it, as long as BYuT delegates to local election commissions actually show up, they’ll take part in the process.  Is there, perhaps, some truth to the PoR allegation that BYuT had planned to withold its delegates, in order to close down the voting process in the east of the country.  Believe me, I’m always willing to be proven wrong, so let me know if I’ve got the wrong end of the stick here.

I suppose one could argue that delegates could be prevented from entering the polling stations, but these are guarded by the MVD, under Lutsenko, a trusted (who on earth knows why) ally of Yulia’s.

No, I just don’t get it.  Seems like a tempest in a teacup to me.

Wait, that’s not a cat metaphor!

Not reported were his later words, “But that’s  the opinion of a ludicrous fuckwit.”

Separated at birth?

January 21, 2010

I was watching a documentary on the IRA last night, when it suddenly struck me how much Brendan Hughes and Harry Shearer (of Spinal Tap and Simpsons fame) look alike.  I doubt Hughes has such a good sense of humour, though.
