Happy Birthday, Mr Putin! - The Serious Discussion Thread

#1
Twelve Moscow State University journalism students posed in lingerie for a calendar to congratulate the Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, on his 58th birthday.

The BBC report

To be honest, I have to congratulate Mr Vladimir Putin's PR team. Despite the human rights controversies of Anna Politkovskaya's murder and the arrest of Yukos Oil Company CEO: Mikhail Khodorkovsky for questionable fraud and tax evasion; the people still profess to 'love' him as Prime Minister.

On the face, it looks innocent enough. His PR team have given him an "action-man image", but when they start making pop-songs about him, that's when the little grey cells start to work. It appears far too much like a chapter out of 1984 to me, and is comparable with the subliminal pro-Big Brother messages played to the proletariat through digital pop-songs.
