The Game of Good Decisions

President Dmitry Medvedev and partner-in-crime Vladimir Putin have released a video of themselves playing badminton – or, rather, the Kremlin’s official website has released it, meaning that, for whatever reason, it has the official stamp of approval.  The Guardian is having a good laugh at Medvedev’s expense: the President insists that badminton is good for improving the decision-making skills of its players, but as one Russian sports writer put it: “For an almost 60-year-old Putin’s not bad. But yeah, Medvedev plays like my mum.”  And we all know who makes the decisions where this duo is concerned.
