I feel like I'm taking crazy pills! Russia is surprising me at every turn this week. From the Washington Post:
"The minority political parties in Russia's parliament walked out of the chamber in a rare act of protest Wednesday, embarrassing the Kremlin during a visit by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and demanding a recount of votes in local elections widely perceived to have been rigged...
Ilya Ponomaryov, a Fair Russia lawmaker, said his party was protesting not only election fraud, which has become routine in Russia, but also an attempt by the authorities to forbid debate on the subject in the Duma."
Right in front of Hillary. I'm in shock, Russia. Disrespecting the Kremlin in front of the Americans. What next?
