So Vladimir Putin decided to run for president of Russia again. What a shocker. The suspense was killing everyone. But it was worth it. Wow, what a surprise! Nobody expected this at all.

So now the big question of whether he will win the election will keep us all on the edge of our seats of course. And also whether the opposition leader (the guy who was hastily locked up after a third of Moscow suddenly voted for him in mayoral election even though he could not campaign like Putin's candidate could) will be allowed to register as a candidate. It is going to be just as exciting as the Brexit vote and the US election. Yay!

Oh wait, it won't. I know that dictatorships are awful in many ways but as a true son of the age of entertainment, my main beef with them is that they are fucking boring and predictable. And there won't be any debates either, because Vladimir does not like the debates. Fair enough, he just doesn't like to be asked questions, that's all. The other candidates do the debates I was told but not Vladimir. Come on Vladimir! If you are going to be a dictator at least don't be a boring and cowardly one, do at least one debate (pssst: you can have all the questions agreed with you but not with the other candidates (if there will be any real ones) in advance and you can strike out the inconvenient ones too).
