The coolest place on the internet, according to this tagline.

The point of elections is that the outcome should be uncertain. This was not the case in Russia. There was no real competition and abuse of government resources ensured that the ultimate winner of the election was never in doubt.

Picula suggests that the election was “clearly skewed” in Putin’s favor. With 99 percent of the votes counted, Putin gathered more than 64 percent of the vote — this despite passionate, widespread dissent against the Russian leader.
