For the first time in ten years, Croatia has a new president - Dr. Ivo Josipovic, legal expert, composer, MP for the Social Democratic Party and newly-elected third president of the Republic. "Sup, dawg?" Josipovic received the most votes in the first round of the election (32%) and in the second round he soundly defeated his opponent Milan Bandic with more than 60% of total votes. Besides being a boon for Josipovic and the SDP leadership, this election also proved that close to a million Croatian citizens are seriously brain-damaged, because only someone with a medical condition would willingly vote for an amoral, illiterate, demagogue lummox like Bandic. And while Josipovic spends the next five years enjoying the fruits of his success, Bandic - who has recently been expelled from SDP for running against the party's officially endorsed candidate - can only look forward to a painful and ill-fated struggle to salvage the remnants of his floundering political career. In this he may find a sympathetic soul in Ivo Sanader, the recently resigned Croatian prime minister (more like chancellor), whose decline has been so swift that he too has just been expelled from his respective party (after attempting to subvert the current government and party leadership which he himself had appointed - guess he learned nothing from Putin). In addition to sharing a common career plight, the two may also end up sharing a jail cell, judging by all the corruption charges being raised against them. Bandic: "Well that's just fucking great. What now?" Sanader: "Dude, shut up and keep smiling. Hey, is that a police van over there?" I am now ready to take your questions.
