Death of a Drunk: Boris Yeltsin Dead at 76

By |

There will be obituaries of Yeltsin on the front page of every major newspaper in the world tomorrow. There will be bromides, there will be asides...but none of them will have the force and directness you'd expect from our own Matt Taibbi, who — from his vantage high atop the leadership of the infamous Moscow-based newspaper The Exile — witnessed first-hand every single year of Boris' mismanagement of the fall of communism. Cut through the crap and feast on the latest installment of The Low Post...and, as always, let us know what you think.
