We Want To Choose The Dude Who Ignores Us

Shorter Jim Arkedis: all those nasty non-democratic countries are stopping us doing the things the people in our democratic countries don't want us to do.

I've no interest in going to the mat for Putin in general, of course, but with specific reference to international affairs it's worth noting that the only difference between the Russian form of government and the American one is that the former doesn't waste three-eights of its time arguing over who gets to be the next person to utterly ignore public opinion.
