How do you spell democracy?

Gotta love Moscow's defense of having blocked gays from laying flowers at the grave of the unknown soldier:

Mayor Yuri Luzhkov said such an action would have been a desecration of the sacred monument, and rejected Western criticism of his ban as prejudiced and homophobic.

"Our way of life, our morals and our tradition -- our morals are cleaner in all ways. The West has something to learn from us and should not race along in this mad licentiousness," he told Moscow radio, according to local news agencies.

"We may have a democratic country, but we live in an organized country and an organized city."

So democracy, sure, but only for those who agree. Oh, and gays are disorganized.  They're constantly losing their keys and missing deadlines. The only really organized man-on-man action must stay between Bush and his noble souled Russian mancake.
