The Putin Kiss: Caught on Tape
Here is the video of Vladimir Putin kissing a little boy. Like a kitten. On the stomach. Yeah, it's kind of weird, but what's weirder is that the Russian press seems to be taking this all very, very seriously. C'mon, guys, loosen up -- no one cared when Silvio Berlusconi [didn't] hump that meter maid.
And on the whole, despotism aside, Putin's still acting way less weird than certain other world leaders.
