Video: Vladimir Putin is awesome at hockey because no one will guard him « Hot Air: "It is a truth universally acknowledged that the skill set necessary to be a dictator coincides perfectly with the ability to master every single sport in the world to a degree not attained by one’s fellow countrymen and Olympians even though the time spent quashing dissent and jailing and murdering dissidents can really interfere with one’s training schedule.
There’s the late Kim Jong Il of the 11 holes-in-one and perfect 300.
There’s Idi Amin, who “defeated” his country’s national boxing coach in a suit and tie, surrounded by his own bodyguards. The coach later said he wisely chose to be TKO’ed instead of killed.
There’s, well, Vladimir Putin of hunting, archeological discovery, and tiger-taming prowess."
