The KGB backs Bush

Putin says a defeat for Bush would be a victory for the terrorists.

Well, it’s still too early to tell whether John Kerry’s claim that many foreign leaders hope he’s elected was correct or not. But now we know at least one foreign leader is plumping hard for his buddy George.

Congratulations to the Bush campaign on this coup. After all, what would Putinization be worth if you didn’t have Putin himself on your side?
