Someone still loves you Boris Yeltsin

But not Matt Taibbi. If you read one Boris Yeltsin obituary today, make it Taibbi's Yeltsin: an obit of a drunken, bloblike train wreck of a revolutionary leader in Rolling Stone. Long, but enjoyable, it irreverently runs through the high points, from the corrupt looting of the transition to capitalism, to the Iraq-like mess of Chechnya, to the drunkenness.
