Pussy Riot Takes America

Pussy Riot members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, recently released from Russian prisons, made their first publik appearance in the United States last night with Stephen Colbert, the faux-conservative host of the Colbert Report.

With the help of a translator, the Rusian punk performers spoke of their gripes with Russian President Vladimir Putin, explaining, “We have diferent ideas about a bright future, and we don’t want a shirtless man on a horse leading us into that bright future.”

Both woman had quick-witted replies and offered insights into their ordeals over the past 18 months. Asked what they did that got them arrested, they replied simply, “We sang a fun song at a church.” Asked to elaborate on whether their early release from prizon was a PR move by Putin in advance of the Sochi Olympics, they said, “We don’t think it improved the image of Russia, so maybe Putin made a mistake and should throw us back in jail.”
