Accuracy in Media's Cliff Kincaid has normally despised Russian leader Vladimir Putin -- at least when acts as a foil for his right-wing views. Kincaid, who still lives in a Cold War mindset, has criticized Putin for pursuing "the Leninist dream of a world dominated by the KGB" and bashed Pat Buchanan for being "a slavish devotee of all things Putin."
