Ramzan Kadyrov, Dancing with the Stars?

While the Chechen singer Makka Sagaipova performs a song "Handsome Guy" (Krasivyi Paren') at a concert in Grozny, the omnipresent Prime Minister of the Russian Republic of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov gets the point (he's not the shy kind, what with the lions in his house and "former" warlords in his government) and joins in the fun. Makka seems just a bit afraid, but I would be, too. We get it, Ramzan, you are the Alpha Male... (Igor)

What's then fuss? No one remembers when Governor Taft of Ohio got up when the Doobie Brothers rolled into town and performed a traditional ethnic Ohioan dance? The one where you skip and twirl and carry a knife in your teeth? No one remembers that? I sure as hell do. Great moment in the intersection of popular music and politics.
