Next time anyone complains that political science articles are too technical and dry, be sure to direct them to Keith Darden’s excellent 2008 Politics and Society article “The Integrity of Corrupt States: Graft as an Informal State Institution“, which contains the following passage from transcribed (secret) audio recordings from Ukraine (p.47):
Kuchma: So then you invite Yulia . . . you invite Yulia, and ask, “Dear one, what are you [expletive], [expletive] doing? Do you want us to [expletive] you [expletive] completely [expletive] or what?”
Take that, HBO….
