The BBC reports on the Ukraine election: Comedian Zelensky ‘wins presidency by landslide’

Ukrainian comedian Volodymyr Zelensky has won a run-off election to become the country’s next president by a landslide, exit polls suggest.

The polls give him more than 70% support. He dominated the first round of voting three weeks ago when 39 candidates were on the ticket.

Mr Zelensky challenged incumbent president Petro Poroshenko.

Mr Zelensky, 41, is best known for starring in a political satirical drama called Servant of the People in which his character accidentally becomes Ukrainian president.

Mr. Poroshenko is the Ukrainian version of Donald. The voters decided if there was going to be a comedian in charge it should be a professional comedian.

With Veep in its final season, maybe Julia Louis-Dreyfus should join the wave and announce a run. She’s had better ratings than Trump and won Emmys.

Hi guys…

Regarding JLD – Veep, you could add Téa Leoni – Madam Secretary (Official CBS site with vid’s). It just finished it’s 5th Season and in Season 6 she is running for POTUS (in the show, duh!). The past 8 Months or so, the show has been hitting Dottard/GOP crap hard.

OT: Don’t know if you or badtux are still interested in Web Log Viewer (mainly Apache)? I’ve mentioned a couple times over the years I was trying to find one that actually works, doesn’t cost more than a car & isn’t full of crap I neither need/want. I just came across a relative new Developer in CH, named Kainet, that also seems to have had enough. They are offering their tool (which I just tried on my local Dev Server) with a free registration until December 31st 2019. It’s relatively simple yet configurable and makes it easy to see what’s going on. If interested:

Drat! I meant to say the s/w is being developed in Switzerland & the company is located in Bern. (I say company, but it appears that currently it’s a single guy). Info on the Contact page.

Two of my great grandparents came from Thun in the canton of Bern in the Confederation of Helvetica [AKA Switzerland, although Schwyz is only one of 26 cantons] so I know where the city of Bern is and what CH means.

Thanks for the heads up on the software.

Yeah. But many (especially American’s) think CH is Czechoslovakia (those that know something about the International Country codes anyway, and I’ve seen many spell it as “Check…” or something similar). *shrug*

Have you seen this Atlantic article? It was not a surprise for me & probably won’t be for you.

Many Americans think Central America means Kansas. 😈

FYI, Czechoslovakia split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. It was related to the break up of Yugoslavia, i.e. nationalism.

New York State is going to pluck Trump’s “golden goose”. They are subpoenaing financial records for Trump and his companies. The truth is that his operation wasn’t worth the effort of the Feds investigating him. He has made himself a target.

The oligarchs own Trump.
