DEMOCRACY....Yesterday I was wondering why Vladimir Putin wants George Bush to be reelected. Here's one analyst's answer:

"It's apparent that Russians and President Putin are interested in a second term for Bush," said Liliya Shevtsova of the Carnegie Moscow Center. "We've always had good relations with Republicans. We dislike Democrats, because Democrats always care about democracy in Russia."

Yeah, Democrats can be annoying that way. It's much easier to deal with Republicans who occasionally jabber about democracy but never actually do anything about it, isn't it?
