an adoration of all things rad

Tens of thousands of Russians are currently protesting in Moscow… rallying against election fraud and the 12-year rule of Vladimir Putin. You’re probably wondering about what Putin is wearing on his head in that protest sign… That’s a condom. Aside from the fact it’s simply ridiculously funny (quick, somebody start a Tumblr of pictures of hated world leaders with condoms on their heads), it’s in reference to a comment he himself made a few weeks ago about the white ribbons worn by the protesters:

To be honest, when I saw on the TV screens what some people had attached to themselves, it’s not very polite, I thought it was an anti-AIDS campaign; I thought that they had stuck condoms on themselves.

The second picture gives you a little bit of a sense of exactly how big a crowd is rallying in Moscow, chanting “Russia without Putin!” and “New elections!”
