Medvedev and Putin, courtesy of Huffington

This is easily my favourite line of journalism over at the Huffington Post today:

"While state-controlled national TV have given ample coverage to both leaders, Putin has been far more astute in using television to cultivate his image as Russia's most powerful person, riding a horse bare-chested through the mountains, swimming the butterfly stroke in a Siberian river and driving motorcycles. The IPad-toting and Tweeting Medvedev looks boyish compared to his steely-eyed mentor."

It's like Flash Gordon meets Dennis the Menace.
