"It goes without saying that the largest Eurasian power is not a baby"

Via Broadsheet, Pravda explains Condoleeza Rice. The funniest lines are as follows:
  • "Condoleezza Rice released a coarse anti-Russian statement. This is because she is a single woman who has no children. She loses her reason because of her late single status. Nature takes it all."
  • "Condoleezza Rice is a very cruel, offended woman who lacks men's attention. Releasing such stupid remarks gives her the feeling of being fulfilled. This is the only way for her to attract men's attention."

If this is what passes for thoughtful discourse about gender in Russia, it's no wonder Russian women are willing to try their luck with the whole mail-order bride scheme.

In comparison to what they're hearing at home, something like Fred Reed's "By contrast foreign women are psychologically coherent. They are sexy because they are women and like being sexy, not as a Vaudeville act or marketing tool. Resentment is not their primary emotion. They love their children and regard raising them as a pleasure, not an imposition of which they are ashamed." sounds practically feminist.

Hey, don't knock Fred. His Will Rogersian knowledge is vast and insightful.

Sadly, I cannot respond coherently to your comment because, like Dr. Rice, I have lost my reason because of my late single status.

It seems that your late single status and failure to become inseminated has also cost you your ability to comprehend. The subject quotes were taken from an interview with Vladimir Zhirinovsky. Granted old Vladi is a member of the Duma and all, but I don't think anyone will mistake his ravings for an official statement from the Kremlin or anything.

It just goes to show; mens' brains are in their dicks, and if you gals don't get a shot of brains every now and then, you start to lose the ability for logical thought.

Oh, Boy Scout, you make a girl blush with all your "dicks" and "hotbeds of liberalism." Too bad you're all talk and no roadtrip.

Exador came up for Independence Day.

Other than that, I don't remember a lot of what happened. I believe there was a bar involved.

Don't like Rice AT ALL, but jeezus kee-rist.
Of course, I lack a man's attention as well. I just use them for their bodies, I only need sporadic attention.

If there are any drunken Russian three year olds, I'm sure they will love me, as we'll be able to communicate, no problem.

Am I wrongly under the impression that Pravda is like Russia's Weekly World News?

Bat Boy is everywhere. He is universal and global minded. I think I recall he joined the military at one time.
