Some 47% of Russians watched the pre-election debates between Zyuganov (Communists), Zhirinovsky (Liberal Democrats, i.e. nationalists) and Bogdanov (Democratic). (Medvedev decided against participating). Here’s a scene from when they thought they were off-camera, in which the ever colorful Zhirinovsky shows us how to debate properly.


Here are a few nuggets of his wisdom to live by:

He’s a scoundrel. Look at his face! Sick man! Schizoid! Look, any psychologist will tell you he’s insane!

Get out of the studio! Get the hell out of the studio, bastard! I’ll rip your head off! Take him out and shoot him in the corridor!
