Vladputin, Emperor of Russia and anything else he can grab, promotes his image as alpha male like almost no other ruler in the world. There are pictures of him shirtless riding a horse that have been doctored to make him into the centaur he imagines we all want him to be. Personally, I would like this anti-gay former chief KGB spook to disappear and the sooner the better. But, until then, we can thank the great political cartoonist Pat Oliphant of the Washington Post for making fun of Putin’s machismo and Secretary Kerry’s lack of it.
