It looks like Jimbo has another brunette, 29-year-old honey that he's keeping watch over on his 'Pedia.

Good going, Jimbo. Remove that disproportionate focus on the politician's college spring break escapades, and maybe she'll go grab some Ronny's Pizza with you the next time you're in Tbilisi. You could share your latest thoughts on the Warrior Cat books you've been reading.

Perhaps Jimbo is trying to run with the big dogs.

When you think about it, it really is interesting how (through the Power of Jimbo™), a reliable news article in The Independent entitled "Russia rails at Georgian minister's 'stripper' photos" and focusing mostly on what is described as "a raunchy photograph", will yield only the following in the Wikipedia article, as a reference source:

QUOTE
Nodar Dzhavakhishvili, the former head of the Georgian National Bank, was quoted as saying that Kobalia had been appointed "without having either the necessary education or any experience whatsoever." Other pundits have noted that President Saakashvili, himself only 36 when he came to power, has a habit of appointing young ministers and openly claims that pulling the younger generation into positions of power is a deliberate strategy to build a new Georgia free from the legacy of Soviet domination.


No mention whatsoever that there was ever a photograph, or that said photograph became a sensation in Russian media. Wasn't Cyclopia recently telling us about how important it is for websites not to be overrun by pro-government agents who whitewash the truth that's known? I wonder what Cyclopia would say about his fearless leader's editorial swoosh here.

In any case, I think the Wikipedia article is deficient in that it lacks any mention of Kobalia's earlier career experience (2004-06) as "Global TV – Destination Funny Entertainment, producer".

It looks like the article had to be protected, so that Jimbo wouldn't be outmaneuvered while discussion rages on the Talk page.

Very disconcerting to me is that I'm now being accused of being a "stalker", by someone named "Anonymous".
