Vote For Volkoff

From Gib over at CrosBlog, I am made aware that Nikolai Volkoff, one half of the famed 1980s WWF tag team The Bolsheviks, is running for a seat in the Baltimore County House of Delegates, as a Republican. Volkoff, as Gib points out, is best known for teaming with Boris Zhukov as the Bolsheviks and then, when the three Baltic republics broke off from the USSR, suddenly becoming "Lithuanian," turning on his partner, and becoming a good guy.

Volkoff is not actually Lithuanian, or Russian, but rather was born in Yugoslavia. Check out his campaign website, which looks like a hacked LiveJournal page. I wish him luck, though the people of Baltimore County might be wise to consider how well it went when Jesse Ventura was elected governor of Minnesota.
