UPDATE: Ukraine Elects Comedian As President

Ukraine is holding a final election today between the incumbent president, Petro Poroshensko and a comedian and political novice, Volodmyr Zelensky.

UPDATE: It appears to be a landslide for Zelensky, winning a 75% to Poroshensko’s 25%. More

    After the Holodomor and Khrushchev maybe they’re due for a few laughs.
