If the Kenyan had any stones, he'd steal Bob Kraft's ring back... just to prove that he could. Fuck those assholes at State.Posted by Casca at July 16, 2013 1:31 PM
I recall when Reagan and Gorbachev were negotiating what turned out to be the surrender and dismemberment of the Soviet Union, the roles were reversed. In particular, on one occasion the two leaders were meeting outside in the cold. Gorbachev came dressed in the Russian fashion with a thick coat and fur hat. Reagan bounded out of the door in just a business suit, and the press then had no problem pointing out the difference in the impression they made. Reagan, impervious to cold and energetic vs. Gorbachev bundled up like a lap dog. My, how times have changed.Posted by cw at July 16, 2013 3:38 PM

President Nancy Boy and his brother Mitch are an example of why progressives are bad news for the country.
Having said that: President Ted Nugent would rip Putin's arm off and slap him with it while saying: "Why are you hittin' yourself?"
It is Kipling's World. It has always been, it shall always be, the salons are there on the edifice because Tommy Atkins (in whatever garb) is below.
And the centurion says "Get on, you dogs; did you expect to live forever?"
And the Legionnaires look up, and drop their packs, and fall into their ranks.
And then comes the day when there are no centurions and there are no legionnaires; and the artsy-fartsy dancy-prancy ones look about, and find no one on the metaphorical wall, and no one on the actual wall.
And if I should live so long I shall shall laugh....Posted by Mikey NTH at July 16, 2013 8:16 PM
