Putin avoids criticism of Russian abolition of direct gubernatorial elections by referencing the Electoral College
That's great. When President Bush criticized Russia's move to abolish direct elections of their state governors, he simply pointed out that the man doing the criticizing was elected by 271 people and not 100 million people in a direct election. So what the hell are we supposed to say to that. We are, in the language of 5th graders, totally busted. It is long past time to abolish the Electoral College. This Russian bust of Bush is one more reason.
