Video: Parliamentary Quorum, Russian Style

Below, the much discussed and quite funny leaked video displaying the woefully low attendance in the Duma, and several representatives running around from seat to seat pressing the vote buttons.  The cleverness of REN TV gives me hope that Russian media still has some spirit and irony:  “One physically strong deputy has time to press nine buttons during the voting.”  Although it’s kind of sad that this doesn’t even really matter in the current state of Russian democracy.
