Putin says yes to "Yes, Mr. President!"... sort of.

NTV has gone and done it--to wade back to the murky waters of political satire, but I have to admit this one is rather harmless and... well, boring. But I know you Putin wonks will watch it anyway--maybe for a third time.

Obviously, not brought to you by the same people who made Kukly. That was pre-Kremlin takeover. NTV reportedly showed it to Putin first and he let them go ahead with it. Wasn't enthusiastic but didn't forbid it either.

I wonder how many people they had to audition before they found someone with a close enough resemblance to Vladimir Vladimirovich, although I think he could have put on a little weight onto that scrawny frame--that would be perfect.

The full program is up on the NTV website: http://www.ntv.ru/peredacha/Da_gospodin_prezident/m27440/o146896
