Is Putin losing it? First he puts on a fake crane mask to help the birds fly to their breeding grounds by flying a motorized hang glider in the shape of a giant crane and now says group sex is better than one on one because you can take a break. Last Friday on an interview at RT, the Kremlin supported English language network, he said that orgies like all collectivist activities allow the participant to go to the sidelines and recuperate. I wonder how all those kids in Nashi, the russian youth organization will take it. Although I'm not a fan of Putin, I have to admit that it's a refreshing break from the perfect family genre of the current American election cycle where it appears that the participants have twin beds like the TV shows of the fifties, children appear to be conceived by immaculate conception and the spouses of the candidates act like June Cleaver clones.
WWJD is now succeed by WWLD - What Would Jesus do replaced by What Would Lenin do. A new dialectic of relationships where the traditional family withers away. Although Lenin officially had a puritanical relationship with his dowdy wife and comrade in arms, Nadya, a lot of his biographers suggest that he also had an extramartial relationship with the exotic and beautiful Ineesa Armand during his exile. A revisionist template for the New Russian Man. Next item on Putin's agenda is to model naked on the cover of Russia's equivalent of GQ magazine with the hand of a member of Pussy Riot around his throat. Now I would buy that edition.
