French actor Gerard Depardieu recently decided he did not want to conform to France’s new 75 percent tax rate. As an alternative, he has become a Russian citizen.

Yesterday, he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin and was granted a Russian passport.

Some call Depardieu a traitor because of his actions.

Laura Ingraham remains outraged that Putin has vowed to sign a bill that would prevent Americans from adopting Russian children.

These days, Putin is surely looking forward to Obama’s post-election flexibility.

    Surely there are better countries to get a passport from for the reason of changing citizenship.

      Yes. Yes there are. But stop calling me Shirley.

    Somehow I think going to Russia for citizenship is going to bite ol’ Dippity-do in the butt one day.

    @AP Depardieu loves his money more than his country. He’s a traitor to France.

    It would never occur to her that perhaps France loves money more than her countrymen. But why would she, Regressives worldwide think this way.
