Kasparov on Maher

It's very late here in Seattle, so most briefly. Kasparov continues to impress, and is of course making all the rounds to the key media here. Bill Maher, who is interviewed here, is just not my kind of guy or 'cup of tea' but the word is is that he is an astute man.

Be sure to hear what Chris Matthews--another talking head here in the United States [1]--says at the end, off his shoulder:

Talk about resourcefullness, depth, and perspective. Article in chessbase, as usual also here.

[2. I'd rather drive cross country in an ultra compact car like a Kia with three great daine dogs with funky phantom discussing my feelings MORE than listen to Matthews, who cannot seem to talk without interuption, a pet peave of mine.]

Like Saddam Hoessein was the right man for iraq, so is Putin the right man for Russia. After the fall of the iron curtain, Russia threatened to become instable. Putin provides stability. Saying this is not the same as justifying his deeds.

In itself it is heroic what Kasparov does. He does what he feels is right and I admire him for that.

Achmadinejad has the same Arabic humor as Saddam Hoessein. If you have no weapons off mass destruction, you can at least make the world think you have them. Not realizing the west istn't able to understand the joke.
