The Kremlin's "Cash for Ladas" Program

Who says the U.S. is out of good ideas? Russia has unveiled it's own "cash for clunkers" plan, giving everyone in the country $1,500 for their trade-in...

...minus, of course, all the pesky details over fuel efficiency.

"The car has to be running, it should be registered with the traffic police and it should have all of the necessary documents," said the ministry's automotive industry director Alexei Rakhmanov.

Seeing that Putin likes to take a hands-on approach to policy, may we suggest putting him in the TV commercial? Better yet, let's get Putin in an oversized cowboy hat and force him to read lines like:

"I need to freedomize, this Ford Explorer!"
