Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Russian officials barred activist Alexey Navalny from entering the country's presidential race a day after he held nomination gatherings to kick off his run, according to state-run media outlet RIA-Novosti. Russia's Central Election Commission (CEC) rejected Navalny's registration the day after he submitted it, citing a previous embezzlement conviction, RIA-Novosti reported. ... Navalny's candidacy was unlikely because Russian law prevents convicted criminals from running for public office, though Navalny and his supporters have said his conviction was politically motivated to block his presidential bid.

Navalny called for a boycott of the election, but the Kremlin is "checking" to see if that is illegal.

Putin will win no matter what, he has 80 percent popularity; otherwise known as why Trump wants to own the media and keeps lying about fake news.

When the DNC spikes Bernie's drinks with palladium and Trump jails Crooked Hillary for daring to run against him and saying mean things about him then American politics will be "kinda" like Russian politics.

Give it a few more years under Vladimir Trump.

How mentally challenged... and/or completely self-absorbed, would someone have to be to have posted here for 10 years and not know the answer to that question?
