THE PLANK FEBRUARY 22, 2009
How are Georgians responding to Russia's de facto annexation of two
of its territories in last year's war? With spirit fingers and sassy hips, of
course! They've elected campy disco group Stephane and 3G to represent the
country at Eurovision, Europe's famous annual song
competition. The band will perform their thinly veiled swipe at the Russian
Prime Minister, "We Don't Wanna Put In," at this year's competition, hosted in Moscow.
Some Russians are
calling for the song to be banned. Let's hope Stephane brings good
security to Moscow.
