Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, owner of the New Jersey Nets basketball team, was elected leader of Russia's Right Cause party on Saturday and vowed to overtake the Communists as the No. 2 political party.

Metals tycoon Prokhorov's leadership of the pro-business party, which supports a second term for President Dmitry Medvedev in 2012, marks the first appearance of a powerful businessman on Russia's political scene in almost a decade.

Mr Prokhorov made a point of completing the land reform and distributing land among russian citizens. But some people around here like Mr Hmmm have already proved that the land here is given around for free. So Mr Prokhorov must have been misinformed, he should probably hire Mr Hmmm as his top advisor...

This Prokhorov politician will make it in politics. He makes all Russians look lazy and inept. He is a smart,billionaire, hard working sports and business guy, who puts the average russian drunk to shame. Will someone put me underground soon ? I have a cheese mold growing on my head !..... I am V.I.Ulyanov, and I am trapped in the masoleum in Red Square! Where is that old Kurva, Krupskaya ?.... with Stalin again ???
