The Problem with “Good Cop, Bad Cop”...

…is that both cops have to be consistent.

Speaking with state-owned Rossiya TV, Medvedev threw down his own personal gauntlet over the World War II blame game, but created a fantastic inconsistency in the process.

“You cannot label someone who defended himself an aggressor,” Medvedev said, unloading his wrath at the 'Divided Europe United' resolution recently introduced by the OSCE. “Excuse me, but this is a cynical lie.”

Too bad Putin just denounced the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact as "immoral," Should we also include that part where, sorry Medvedev, Russia was the aggressor against Poland?


And while we fully agree that Putin has demonstrated fits of cynicism and mistruth in the past, we’re pretty sure Medvedev meant to say that the OSCE was a liar, not his boss.

Too bad. We were just warming up to the guy.
