Russian ‘Scholar’ Needs to Lay Off the Vodka


A dean in the Russian Foreign Ministry’s school for future diplomats — in a lecture that, strangely, the media was “pointedly invited” to attend — predicted that President Obama will order martial law this year, the United States will “collapse” by 2010 and break up into six autonomous “rump-states,” and Alaska will “revert to Russian control” (ha, good luck with that). Then the assemblage of students, professors, and diplomats watched silently as he boxed a giant, invisible bunny and fell asleep on the floor. [AP via ABC News]
