And he's a real cranky-pants as usual.
Apparently, he's also delusional, as usual:
The man who ended the Cold War and launched democratic reforms that broke the repressive Soviet regime continues to enjoy the limelight, globe-trotting on behalf of his political foundation and environmental group and taking part in charity projects.
At a meeting with foreign reporters this week, Gorbachev blamed the United States for losing a chance to build a safer and more stable world following the Soviet demise.
"Ending the Cold War was given as a gift" to the United States, but it only strengthened its arrogance and unilateralism, he said. "The winner's complex is worse than an inferiority complex, because it's harder to cure."
First off, "the man who ended the Cold War"? My, my, aren't we a wee bit arrogant, Mikey? I'm no student of history-- oh wait, yes I am-- but a little birdie tells me that Gorbachev had a little bit of help in ending the Cold War.
As far as ending the Cold War as a gift, well, thanks Mister Gorbachev, but what have you done for us lately?
Pity the sad fantasies of a bitter old man.
