Boris Yeltsin, Boozer Of The International Stage
Before there was Vladimir Putin, there was his polar opposite, Boris Yeltsin. While Putin seems the epitome of cool, collected, yet inwardly psychotic and conspiratorial, Yeltsin was the ultimate boozer of the international stage. He could down a liter of beer like Blutarsky could down a bottle of Jack Daniels.
While this is can be seen as funny, it also calls to mind possible nuclear disaster in the event he’s had one too many vodkas to think clearly and rationally.
