According to the Associated Press, Russian President Dmitri Medvedev wants to get outside of the DC beltway in his next trip to the USA:
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says he would like to meet with "dissidents" when he visits the U.S. next week.
Russian news agencies quote him as telling a group of visiting foreign experts that "I believe there are dissidents in the United States."
ITAR-Tass quotes him as saying: "Let them tell me what problems the United States has. That won't be bad, considering the Soviet experience."
I think that this is a fantastic idea, when one considers the potential pool of dissidents. Fortunately, Andy Heil has come up with a list of possibile dissidents at RFERL's Transmissions blog. His list:
1. Noam Chomsky 2. Rush Limbaugh 3. Michael Moore 4. Kanye West 5. Sarah Palin 6. Jeremiah Wright 7. Gus Hall 8. Sean Penn 9. Chirstopher Hitchens 10. Eric Cartman
This is an excellent start, but I think we can add a few names to the old dissident list. Let me think.... who else is railing against the System these days?
1. Glenn Beck 2. U.S. Representative Ron Paul 3. Glenn Greenwald 4. Dick Cheney 5. Serena Williams 6. U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich 7. Jimmy Carter 8. U.S. Representative Joe Wilson 9. Terrell Owens 10. Beyonce (OK, technically, she's not railing against the system -- but as much of a jackass as he might have been, Kanye was right: this is the most awesome video ever. She was robbed, and I blame The Man).
I'm just trying to imagine Medvedev meeting this crew.

M’dev wants to meet with “dissidents” after Baraq raised the white flag to the Soviets ????
He should come to Texas.
Maybe it’s like measuring for curtains...for after they roll Bammy again and agina...tell him to stay the (*& out...
Last time a Russian bigshot wanted to meet with ‘dissidents” was in the movie Red Dawn. Not a good idea.
Well, you gotta admit it is at least a balanced assortment...
Hell, I’d buy the pay per view to see the Limbaugh - Chomsky Steel Cage Match...
After BamaKennedy's actions this week I doubt there will be much need for Medvedev to move outside the liberal circles of WDC.
Hey, you left out Maddie “America S*cks” Notsobright:
I’ll even buy the beer!
Word to the wise... protocol with Russians calls for Vodka... not beer... :)
We can sum this up by noting that Russian government is now run by the propaganda wing of the former KGB, while the US government is run by a damn fool.
NO thanks. I don’t want to speak to that commie KGB piece of filth’s puppet. Their intentions are NOT for the good of America.
