Aaaaah.......he's just a sweet, old man with a touch of dementia.

So what else is new? Almost every time Putin opens his cake hole and cackles his gibberish to the general public he only reasserts the fact that he is a bald-faced liar.

I wonder what color the sky is in his world? Maybe since it appears like he is a closeted gay it is rainbow colors. Anyone who is so concerned and homophobic as he is I think is still in the closet about his/her own sexuality.
