What an Opportunity, Indeed.

Communists in Russia are excited that people will feel threatened enough by world events to re-install their totalitarian rulers. I mean, they're really back with Putin and Medvedev, anyway, (and engineered conflicts with, say... Georgia?), but 'ooh! People might take someone who still carries the actual party name if they get desperate enough!' To quote:
Gennady Zyuganov told the party's annual congress the Communists should make maximum use of the growing public discontent caused by the economic downturn to try to restore their political strength.
Gee, who else has recently said that he should never let a crisis go to waste? (Hint: "a cross between a hemorrhoid and a toothache.")
