New Moscow Mayor a “Shoo-In” for the Job…

Sergey Sobyanin, Russian politician
Sobyanin…

We have a term that I like to use in life and it is called “shoo-in”. That term as I recollect came from the early 1900’s and it came from horse racing, where a shoo-in was the winner of a rigged race…

So this morning while drinking my morning cup of coffee, I had to chuckle when I thought about the fact that the new Moscow Mayor is the deputy prime minister and chief of staff to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin…

Hummm lets see what the grapevine says…

According to local gossip over 99 per cent of the Duma deputies intend to OK Sobyanin for the position of Moscow Mayor. If he is given the job by the Duma, Sobyanin will step down as deputy prime minister and chief of staff to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin… 🙂

Now that is just “ducky” wouldn’t you say?

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
