Putin has often shown some amazing prestidigitational skills. He made human rights and free enterprise disappear in the post- Soviet Russia. He hypnotized W when he looked into his eyes and failed to see the reflection of a Texas village idiot. But recently Vlad the Imp Paler has displayed some new tricks.
Opponents of the President, turned Prime Minister but Tsar all along, have begun to disappear from TV broadcasts. Just say something uncomplimentary about Putin or his puppets and you are zapped off the air.
St Petersburg citizen and neighborhood gossip, Marfa Petrovna told TheSpoof.com: " I was watching Meet the Presscovna. My favorite tall and handsome up and coming Roosian politician, Roman Romanov Bygdykovitch was saying that little Putin suffers from a Napoleon complex.
"Just as impoverished law student Raskolnikov tried to defend the Napoleon theory of the great man, Bygdykovitch simply vanished from the screen.
"Little Vlad has super powers. That's the only explanation!"
