Papa Boris

| 1 Comment

Boris Yeltsin has died. As one of my less explicable nicknames in high school was "Boris Yeltsin's other son," I feel compelled to comment.

Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II have each been credited with single-handedly defeating communism in Europe, and I'm wondering if Boris will get the same honor. He, after all, was the one who actually dissolved the Soviet Union. But we'll have to see. In any case I'm sure they'll say the same thing about Margaret Thatcher when she goes tets-up.

In the meantime, please enjoy these videos:

Boris Yeltsin dancing.

Boris Yeltsin and Bill Clinton get the giggles.

I can't seem to find the video of Boris Yeltsin giving the extremely angry, very probably drunk, speech in the last days of his presidency. So if anyone has that make with the linky-link in the newly registration-enabled comments.

Oh man, Clinton. Those were the days. Now I'm all nostalgic.
