Matt Taibbi, co-founder of the eXile, Moscow's most caustic and painfully funny newspaper, has relocated to Buffalo, NY (?) to work his journalistic mojo there. That is, if he's not arrested over this editorial.

Why somebody would give up their freedom in Russia and move to the United States is beyond me.

I do hope you're joking. Russia's a crime-ridden racist dump.

That's a funny editorial. I bet the CIA wouldn't be able to connect the dots on this case either, if it were true.

Heh. They have a hotline for Creed dependence:

Why is that funny? Seems like pissing into the wind to me. I guess that is kind of funny, having piss all over yourself.

Speaking of "Connecting the Dots..."

What's that I smell? The gentle breeze of freedom...ahhh, it's been a while.

I could deal with some pimple-faced kid about 14 years old writing something like this a photocopying it to pass around at school. That these people are supposedly "caustic and painfully funny" is lost on me by reading this lousy piece of tripe - something in me hopes that the CIA spends some time with them seeing if the "dots connect" just to prove a point.

By coincidence, I just happen to have a Buffalo Sabres shirt on today and I'd be happy to wear it up there to go kick their asses for being so damned stupid...

Didn't Matt say something about never coming back to America until the last tattoo was removed from every Tower Records employee - preferably with an electric carving knife?
