The nights are long and lonely in the world of the Kremlin’s most capricious Thumbelina, Dmitry Medvedev. Sipping away the hours in the comfort of his well-protected Moscow penthouse, the angry little guy stares at photos of the good old days when world leaders respected him, and Russians actually liked — and didn’t fear — their president.
