Check This - Gary Kasparov Runs for President in Russia

Puns are supposed to be bad.


Former world chess champion Kasparov wins backing of opposition party The Other Russia, for president.

"The Other Russia" sounds like the name of a bar in Kiev, one I'd rather not visit.

Oh, and it's the 50th anniversary of the launching of Sputnik I.

I Was Just About To Post This [Ace]: Question Is Putin so confident of his tyrannical skills that he can kill, arrest, or cheat a national hero?

This is wonderful. Go, Gary, Go!

Hot Air's Bryan notes Putin has, of course, already subjected Kasparov to an investigation into his supposed "extremism" (a.k.a. dislike of Soviet KGB tyranny).

But as of yet he's been too afraid to put a bullet in his head as is his wont with journalists.
