I couldn’t help but smirk at the video of Putin sitting on the left and Obama on the right during the Russian president’s recent visit to Washington.
There Putin sat, looking like the cat that ate the canary. He wouldn’t even look Obama in the eyes. I’m laughing even as I type.
Meanwhile, in Russia, people all over the place are protesting Putin’s presence as president. Why? He’s freaking been there since the fall of the Soviet Union; that’s why. Is it time for Putin to get the proverbial hook and get jerked off-stage?
I’d say so.
Even funnier were the clips of Putin riding bareback on his horse through the wilderness. He had his shirt off, and I couldn’t help but laughingly think, “Putin…. You’re gonna get sunburned, white-ass….”
White-ass is what many Native Americans call us Caucasian invaders. Personally, I don’t blame Native Americans for disliking the current arrangements. While the idiots of the reactionary right proclaim “self-ownership” and threaten incursions of their God Almighty property rights, the plain truth is they’re living on stolen land. And America has never really paid-up.
Enter “Super-Putin”. He looked like a six-year-old on that horse. Was this a public relations stunt? Some kind of midlife crisis displayed on TV? A message? To whom?
Let’s jerk Putin off-stage for a moment and move to Colorado Springs, Colorado. For the last couple of weeks, a forest fire has ravaged the beautiful little city 70 miles south of Denver. It’s the home of the U.S. Air Force Academy, as well as the home of “Focus on the Family”. From the so-called ramparts of the Rockies, Christian fundamentalist idiot-heads disparage homosexuals and compare homosexuality with beastiality. Apparently, in their narrow, shotgun-shack world, the Beast of the Apocalypse is going to be gay. Who knows?
But the fire. I don’t like the fire.
One of the not-so-reported details of Putin’s visit to Washington is that, as Putin and Obama were discussing, a Russian ship had rounded Norway and was right to the left of Scotland, and filled with 20 Russian attack helicopters headed for Syria. Apparently, Putin wants to get that growingly apparent civil war just hopping hot.
After the visit, for some reason, the attack helicopter-loaded ship turned around and headed back to the Arctic where it belongs.
Vladimir Putin and Eddie Haskell. Who would have thunk it?
I think back to Jane Fonda and a helicopter of her own, riding high over Wounded Knee in the early Seventies, dropping food for the angrier-than-all-git-out Lakota who were taking-over a public monument to a massacre. At the time, I cheered her on. I thought the Lakota had something to be upset about. Of course, the FBI killed several Lakota. It was horrible. I have friends who were there.
Then, in the early Nineties, Jane Fonda teamed-up with Ted Turner to present “The Native Americans”, a weeklong documentary I showed to my Latino neighbors—many of whom knew absolutely nothing of their Native American ancestry. Boy, those kids were excited about that.
But then there’s Putin again. Putin, the white-ass riding bareback.
I’ve never liked Vladimir Putin, former KGB chief turned controller of the so-called fall of the Soviet Union.
What a whore.
