Владимир Владимирович may be an autocrat, but he sure is more MANLY than The Empty Chair!
VLADIVOSTOK, Russia (AP)—Vladimir Putin flew a motorized hang glider to lead a flock of young Siberian white cranes in flight, a characteristic stunt for Russia’s action-man, animal-loving president.
Dressed in a white costume meant to imitate an adult crane, Putin was taking part in a project to teach the endangered birds who were raised in captivity to follow the aircraft on their southern migration to Central Asia. It follows a series of adventures for which the Russian leader has become alternately notorious and beloved, from flying a fighter jet to riding a horse bare-chested.
Perhaps Pooty and Romney could have some sort of competition?
