Happy Hour News
Right on schedule, Comrade Queeg is going buggy with paranoia (as we predicted):
But behind the scenes, the dictator is increasingly paranoid and fears that someone in his inner circle will poison him, a new report says.
Daily Beast contributing editor Craig Copetas says he’s been told that Putin has people tasting his food before he eats it and that last month, he replaced his entire personal staff of 1,000 people.
“Laundresses, secretaries, cooks — to a whole new group of people. The assessment from the intelligence community is that he’s scared,” Copetas said.
Look, a madman with nukes is not a great thing, and certainly after 4 years of the 4th Reich with our own Stable Jenius’ red button, we should not feel any comfort here.
But, he’s snapping, for sure.
