Is Putin a demigod? Watching the unison of clapping that went on while he justified the reason for Russia’s to annexing of The Crimea, one phrase kept on coming into my mind.
Quem deus vult perdere, dementat prius
“Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad”
Certainly those rather demented members of the Russian parliament were clapping like well trained and drilled drugged up seals.
The eyes of the parliamentarians were like orgasmic gnomes willing to do the bidding of their dear leader. Mein fuhrer looked a apt phrase to exalt the great man and now mad demigod wannabe.
