Today in "This is Not a Joke": last month, Putin ordered ministers to contribute 1 month's salary to statue of Pyotr Stolypin, Nick II's PM

Stolypin, as you recall, was at best ineffectual and at worst a ruthless suppressor of peasant revolt, proponent of kangaroo courts, nooses.

Today we find out, Putin has a hard time getting his deputy PMs and ministers to chip in. Only $200K raised so far. http://t.co/QQW31Wt

I would love to see a similar scenario: Obama gathers cabinet, says, "Hey, I'ma need some moneyz for a statue of Samuel P. Chase."
