This is how politicians debate for office in Russia. How great would a Clinton-Obama throwdown on live TV be?

>HOWEVER! He is not representative of Russia`s political or ideological state of mind. He is an atrocity and his pool of support is very small (think independent party). The main reason he has any support is because he does not have a social filter (obviously), making him one of a few honest/real politicians (appearently not always a good thing).


Totally right.
And he isn`t crazy, he simply exploits a certain image based on epatage. And people don`t care much not because they don`t give a damn about the country`s politics, they just can`t see a big problem about some guy who decided to play the fool. Every time he does an odd thing they have a good laugh and then vote for someone else.

I`d vote for him. About time we had another World War.

"Hillary/Obama is president of the USA now? THATS IT! FIRE ZE MISSILES!"

Anger management issues for real.... omfg. He`s like a spoiled child.

"He insulted me and said I betray my country...blah blah blah..."

Ya OK as.shole, but that doesn`t give you the right to be a f*cking barbarian. How you expect to run a whole COUNTRY with issues like that? What an douchebag...

Russia is my new favorite country. I have Obama over Hilary with a third round knock out and I think McCain can take him, he has a good left.

I have a vague feeling he`s mad.

And that he was never taught to control his temper like a good little adult.

PS: Those 2 things happened before I moved to the US in `99, so I`m sure that list is actually much longer.

Without watching the whole thing, I can say that the guy is Zhirinovskiy. He`s been trying to run for president since mid 90`s and never had any real success.

This would not be the first time for him
- he was involved in throwing a glass of water in his opponent`s face and then charging at him on a TV debate show.
- on a separate occasion, while in a Duma (think Congress) meeting, he physically assaulted a female member, including pulling on her hair, until he was gragged off her.

HOWEVER! He is not representative of Russia`s political or ideological state of mind. He is an atrocity and his pool of support is very small (think independent party). The main reason he has any support is because he does not have a social filter (obviously), making him one of a few honest/real politicians (appearently not always a good thing).

So yeah, LoofahBoy, don`t generalize about entire country on a sample of 1 polititian, kthx?
