Elsewhere: Politics

I wasn't sure as to whether there were still politics out there, resigned as I was to a string of Bush cabinet departures followed by
another four years of new people fucking things up, but things are still alive and well (well, not well) in the Ukraine.

Ukrainian political graf of the day:

In this battle for public perception, Mr. Yushchenko's face is one of his weapons. Mr. Yushchenko said his recent disfiguration was a result of his being poisoned. Mr. Kuchma's camp says that he is afflicted by a mysterious disease, or that perhaps he ate bad sushi. But the illness underscores Mr. Yushchenko's message that in Ukraine, things are so fundamentally ugly that they must fundamentally change.
