Quote of the Day, 4 June 2007

“I am an absolutely pure democrat. The real tragedy is that I am the only one. Elsewhere in the world there just aren’t any others . . . Since Majatma Gandhi died, there’s just nobody left to talk to.”

– Vladmir Putin, President of Russia, responding on 1 June 2007, in a pre-G8 Summit meeting, to press questions about the criticisms that the Kremlin has been suppressing opponents of the Russian government and shackling democratic institutions.

As we lawyers say, res ipsa loquitur.
