The way he were

I have no particular reason to post these, but they happened to pop up in my inbox this afternoon, courtesy of a friend at a news agency here. That and the Russian youths seems to really like them.

But here they are, and here is Russian President Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev the way he once was and how he probably wouldn’t want us to remember him.

Here’s Dima in school, or in university, somewhere deep in the feathered 1980s:

And you though he was chubby in the last one.

    I like the one where he’s cooking on a crappy Soviet stove. What a man of the people.

  2. I totally dig the mullet in the first. If Dima lived in America he would have most certainly owned a muscle car.

    The adage that every country gets the leaders it deserves has never rung sadder.

  4. I guess it’s time I stopped rolling the bottom of my jeans, eh?
