The chaps at Rebuilding Year bring us news that Nikolai Volkoff’s candidacy for the Maryland House Of Delegates has proven unsuccessful.

(happy backstory action, pt. 1 and 2)

Not since the New Jersey Devils’ Christoper X. Brodeur was fucked out of the NYC Mayoral race, have I been so disappointed.

On the bright side, this might present an opportunity for the creators of “The Wire” to recruit Volkoff for a unique bit of stunt casting for their 5th season.

In other political news, I must confess, I’ve lost track of what’s happening in the Heath Shuler campaign, but someone else is totally on top of it.
