Georgia Fights Back with Disco

The Eurovision Song Contest, just like the World Cup, is an easy outlet for national rivalries. But this year's event promises bonafide political statements.

Georgia had planned to boycott the event, to be held in May in Moscow, but changed its mind and will offer Stephane and 3G's "We Don't Wanna Put In," a danceable attack on the Russian premier.

If only Vladimir himself would dress up in a spangly uniform and try to express Russia's re-emergence through synthesized pop.
