Drunk Russian Politician With Gun

Vladimir Zhirinovsky Fires A Weapon From A Moving Train:

Vladimir Volfovich Zhirinovsky is a Russian politician, founder and the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), Vice-Chairman of the State Duma (Russian Parliament), and a member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

If I am to understand correctly, he's drunk on a train, sends an aide to the back to get his shotgun so he can hunt crows from the speeding train...gets trigger happy and so starts taking aim at chicken coups of the locals along the tracks as well. As if hunting crows from a train wasn't a bad enough idea.

Apparently this is a public train no less. I edited out the long lead in of him jabbering on and on and sending the aide to get his gun...I guess he's given to anti-semetic rants, which I think he was doing prior to this, but my Russian isn't so good.

This guy is the #2 in the Duma, and has run for president of russia several times. To his credit, he stops long enough to wave to kids.

Above is the description posted with the video. I can't vouch for it's accuracy but it looks authentic to me. How long until someone posts a Dick Cheney hunting joke in the comments?
