Freudian Slip of the Year

I call them Tymoshenko Regionalists.

The video you’re about to see features Oleksandra Kuzhel (PRU), a former MP who currently serves as Chairwoman of the State Committee on Regulatory Policy and Entrepreneurship.

Oleksandra Kuzhel: I was invited to this store. They were having a dis...a blowout footwear sale. I had never seen such a large number of people in that store when I arrived. So I took a pair of shoes at a price that I know they sell in Milan. That is, uh, the discount price equaled the real [Milan] price. And that’s the price that had already reflected a bribe...[spins her eyeballs in reverse mode]...a discount...of more than 80 percent.

Just watch her rapid eye movement! Why do our well-traveled/well-clad officials have such a geographically displaced sense of bribery?

It’s about time the Ukrainian diaspora in Italy followed up on Kuchma’s Ukraine Is Not Russia with an Italy Is Not Ukraine.

After all, it’s Ukrainians — an estimated 600,000-1,000,000 people — who have fled to Italy, not the other way around..

Oh yeah! It’s truly rich — rich in reality!

I can only compare it to Yanukovych’s immortal “Anna Akhmetova” slip:)
