Lawmaker Lost Drunken Arm-Wrestling Match with Putin

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) told KPCC that Russian President Vladimir Putin once beat him in an arm-wrestling match to decide who won the Cold War.

Said Rohrabacher: "I didn't know who he was then. He was deputy mayor of St. Peteresburg. That's all we knew... But anyways, we started arguing about who won the Cold War, etc. And so we decided to settle it like men do when they've had too much to drink in the pub. And so we got down to these arm wrestling matches. And I ended up being paired up with Putin. And he's a little guy, but boy I tell you, he put me down in a millisecond. He is tough. His muscles are just unbelievable."
