Gorbachev Asks Putin To Kill Him

I'm not sure what Gorbachev is thinking, but he seemed like a really nice guy.
Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev will join forces with Russian tycoon Alexander Lebedev to launch a new political party independent of the Kremlin, the billionaire businessman said on Tuesday.
How long before he trips and falls into a vat of uranium?
Though hugely admired in the West, he is deeply unpopular at home for presiding over the 1991 break-up of the Soviet Union that led to economic and political chaos. When he last ran for president, in 1996, he won just half a percent of the vote.
Oh, never mind. He's the Ron Paul of Russia.
