So the Olympics Opening Ceremony is over.

An amazing spectacle with Heads of State in attendance galore.

But not Georgia’s Mikhail Saakashvili.

He’s back in Georgia watching his country being attacked by Russia right now… literally at the same time everyone else, Putin included, watched the ceremony… err, Olmpics, that is.

Who are the goodies. Who are the baddies?

Either way, back to reality.

Ukraine and Georgia face uphill battle on NATO. Here ya go Um…Wed Apr 2, 2008 2:42am EDT

BUCHAREST (Reuters) – Ukraine and Georgia faced an uphill battle on Wednesday to persuade NATO nations to put the two ex-Soviet states on the path to membership, with Germany and France leading resistance to their U.S.-backed bids.

President George W. Bush vowed on the eve of a NATO summit in Bucharest, starting later on Wednesday, to press their case. But a core of European states say the duo are not ready for a step which could exacerbate tensions with Russia.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier was quoted as saying NATO should not strain ties with Moscow beyond “the limit of the manageable” by supporting their request for a Membership Action Plan (MAP), a gateway to eventual membership.


Germany and France, in agreement? Surely you jest. Pussies! “Strain ties”? Think “Cold War”, what is Russia going to do? Lauch missiles? At whom? “Strain ties”, indeed. (“Indeed” is a word often used by Instapundit and since Instapundit has the word “indeed” ©, I guess I better give a “h/t”, huh?)

Russia may return to coal for domestic power

Russia’s Most Famous Female Bodyguard Murdered During Carjacking

Anna Loginova, Russia’s most famous and glamorous female bodyguard, was murdered by a carjacker when her own personal Porsche Cayenne was stolen from her.


This is sad but predictable. Russia has a rampant crime problem, and this is a direct consequence of years under a godless, totalitarian, communist dictatorship. Call it a societal amoral hangover, if you like.

Now that capitalism has taken hold in the former Soviet Union, the have-nots – can-nots, more likely – feel no moral compunction about coveting the property of others to the point of theft and even murder. That’s why Anna’s outfit had such brisk business.

She makes some excellent points in the previous interviews quoted – especially the point about obviously beefy security guys being barred from eateries and such – but she should never have gone anywhere without male backup, in my opinion.

Sometimes a big, buff, and well-trained male motherfucker-of-a-killing-machine is the only thing that will work. Hope some Russians learned a lesson from this… but given that it’s Russia, after all, I wouldn’t bet on it.

Why Leftard Feminist Hags Hate Capitalism: Russian Babes

Via John Derbyshire at NRO’s The Corner I found an amazing article by Anne Applebaum answering the question on all of our minds… OK, on the minds of us bachelors, anyway, Where Did All Those Gorgeous Russians Come From? The answer? Russia has always been filled with gorgeous babes, it’s just that capitalism has finally freed them!

That ought to blow up a few feminist heads (Very small explosions… more like muffled “pops”).

I posted a pic of Maria Sharapova the other day, so I guess we’ll go with the number one Russian Supermodel today: Natalia Vodianova:


It’s not just Russians either. As an artist and aesthetic perfectionist, I love artistic female photography (Yeah, that’s the reason. And I got a bridge…). Babe sites today are positively dominated by eastern European models with last names ending in -cova, and -nov.

The Beef of God is not a Supermodel kind of guy. I like women who aren’t stick-figures, and I love full, rounded faces. Like this:


I think she’s from the Czech Republic. If God had ever made a girl for me, she’d have looked exactly like that, but she’d have her natural dark, dark, dark brown hair. Green eyes and dark brown hair… ~sigh~
