Here's a companion story (from Vox) about Vladimir the Bully:

The incident of Vladimir Putin, Angela Merkel, and the dog is a famous one. It was 2007 and Merkel, Germany's Chancellor, was visiting Putin at his presidential residence in Sochi to discuss energy trade. Putin, surely aware of Merkel's well-known fear of dogs, waited until the press gathered in the room, then called for his black Labrador to be sent in. The Russian president watched in unconcealed glee as the dog sniffed at Merkel, who sat frozen in fear.

Leading from Imperiled Ego: Professor Nina Kruscheva on Maddow, On Putin

Leave it to Maddow to do the research. And find actual experts. On someone as complex an individual as Vladimir Putin.

There are few scholars, particularly teaching in New York City that can speak to the USSR and Putin and His Russia with credulity, never mind credibility.

Rachel had one on air by 9:30 last night. Now teaching at The New School in NYC, Nina Kruscheva and Maddow had a worthy discussion of both background and possible paths forward.

Following Kruscheva's interview, Maddow pivoted to some superb and factual reporting about the Fvx Nation Revered Reagan response to the 1983 Soviet shoot down. Have a gander.

The zombie plane of corpses conspiracy was worthy of Hannity ... wait a minute ... is there a Russian Hannity feeding him bullshite blintzes and vice versa?!?

Her next block brought the well-crafted story home.

That photo of rows and rows of sunflowers being searched by off-duty Ukranian coal miners ... for bodies from the downed airliner. Chilling.

Until the "crime scene" was shut down by the separatists thought responsible for the crash ... leaving the bodies to lie in those Eastern Ukrainian fields for a second night. Unrefrigerated.

It's already midday in Eastern Ukraine, being about 7:30 a.m. EST - here's hoping the families and victims find more justice amidst the political machination as day three of this human tragedy of a search and recovery operation continues.

Vlad the Mad Imagines Hillary Clinton a 'Weak' Lady

Written by guest contributor, "hardybear" of the wonderful Free Range Talk site:

Putin, Putin, Putin.

Of all of the women in all the world, you had to choose Hillary Rodham Clinton to publicly accuse of weakness. And of being a Lady!

You silly, silly man.

You would do well to invest in an Iron Jock for those Imperial Cajones, dude. American womenfolk know how to brandish a knee. And we are about as fed up as we can BE with the Regressive GOP.Tea War on Women at home - we're presently stockpiling trans-vaginal probes for future pop-prostate exams.

Pushing boundaries in the Crimea is one thing. Crossing this demeaning line is quite another. Let's just pray the man had a shirt on when he penned the following sexist-on-steroids poke in the eye to Hillary Clinton. From The Moscow Times.

"It's better not to argue with women. But Ms Clinton has never been too graceful in her statements," Putin was quoted as saying in a transcript published on the Kremlin website.

"When people push boundaries too far, it's not because they are strong but because they are weak. But maybe weakness is not the worst quality for a woman," Putin added in the interview.

We will have enough home-grown sexist rants and rages between now and the Sweet Sixteen to fill a wide swath of Siberia, but heaven help them if they limbo low enough to declare weakness perfectly fine in a female.  #YesAllWomen will show the Regressive Asshattery just how strong American dames are.

If Vlad The Shirtless Lampooner starts on Elizabeth Warren, I'll personally activate the posse. Certainly Pussy Riot would jump aboard post haste.
