VLADIMIR PUTIN’S PERSONAL POLICE STATE: Russian female punk band Pussy Riot found guilty of hooliganism over Putin protest at church site. “The three were arrested in March after a guerrilla performance in Moscow’s main cathedral in February calling for the Virgin Mary to protect Russia against Vladimir Putin, who was elected to a new term as Russia’s president a few days later. They face a maximum seven years in prison.”
I recommend that artists and musicians around the world make Putin-mockery a recurring theme. Suggestions that he has a small penis would be a bonus. Denouncing him as a big, scary dictator will make him happy. Saying that he’s scared of girls, not so much. And, you know, he obviously is.
UPDATE: Sentenced to two years. Let the mockery begin!
