To Vector’s comment we can now add Citizens United, SuperPACs, and GOP-led states adopting noxious “voter” laws that will disenfranchise blacks, students, and the elderly.

The New York Review of Books recently had an excellent article entitled, “Can we have a democratic election in this country?”  The title says it all.

Americans would do well to worry about the corruption and voting impedimenta that corrode their own nation, rather than belittling others.

Russian elections are no more corrupt than US elections.

sofia——-”....Putin enjoys the love, respect, and support of the preponderant
majority of the Russian electorate.”  much less than did Stalin.

Putin is a worthless, soulless KGB thug,,,,,, and you’re spreading manure for him.

I couldn’t agree more sofianitz! The quality of the cartoons on this site has gone down the drain. This one is just feeble minded.

There may havew been “certain irregularities”, in the Russian Presidential elections,  and of course, I wouldn’t have voted for him, but Vladimir Putin enjoys the love, respect, and support of the preponderant majority of the Russian electorate.  No President in the United States,except maybe Franklin Roosevelt in 1932 or 1936, has enjoyed so much support.  Maybe that is why certain American Agencies and their media sycophants try to disparage Putin. They have no similar level of popular support in Western society (for any government) with which to compare Vladimir Putin’s overwhelming electoral victory.
