LISA MULLINS: By the way, Georgian President has also been criticized recently for hiring an American masseuse. Dot Stein, aka â€œDr. Dotâ€ usually massages rock stars, including Bon Jovi. We now submit to you Dr. Dot, describing her trip to the caucuses in a video she posted online.
DOT STEIN: When I told some of my friends I was going to Georgia, they're like, â€œOh, you were just in Atlanta.â€ I'm like, â€œNo, not that Georgia. The other Georgia.â€ They're like, â€œOh yeah. You massaged the President of Georgia. You mean Obama?â€ I'm like, â€œNo. Mikhail. The other dude.â€ The president's bodyguards brought me on a lot of day trips, most of them involved driving really far and looking at churches. That church right there is from the 1st century. I felt so young. It was great to be in a country that don't hate Americans. In Europe, it's unbelievable. I'm pretty tired of being a whipping post, by the way. But in Georgia, they seem to love Americans, so I felt pretty good there.
MULLINS: That's Dr. Dot, masseuse to Georgia's President, on PRI.
