(The Staten Island Thinker) — Q: Victor, why do you think Russian speaking Americans call you “The Russian Limbaugh”?

A: Well, probably because we both adhere to very conservative views.

In a classic Soviet satire by Ilf and Petrov, a group of characters investigates who among them share similar political views. One character was so far right that he didn’t even know what political party he could possibly belong to – I think that’s me. But seriously, I have great respect for Limbaugh, Savage, Hannity and Levin. Yet, there can’t be an accurate comparison – they were born here, in America, while I’m a “migrant”. We differ in origins, mentality and language. Oh! And I almost forgot – also in the sizes of our paychecks.
