In Russia, man eat bear
Russian armed forces seized control of Ukraines Crimean Peninsula on Saturday, as the Russian Parliament granted President Vladimir V. Putin broad authority to use military force in response to the political upheaval in Ukraine that dislodged a Kremlin ally and installed a new, staunchly pro-Western government.
In other news, former GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney refrained from saying I told you so and patiently awaits an apology from anyone at any of the major news outlets in America for mocking his position that Russia is an enemy of the United States.
Also, former GOP Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, having more than earned bragging rights, and knowing better than to expect an apology, said I told you so:
Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. I'm usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as an extremely far-fetched scenario by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine. Heres what this stupid insipid woman predicted back in 2008: After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama's reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia's Putin to invade Ukraine next.
As Maggie reports, even Noam Chomsky was forced to take a step back:
I dont usually admire Sarah Palin, but when she was making fun of this hopey, changey stuff, she was right. There was nothing there.
If anyone wants to talk about the real War on Women, they should investigate the Progs treatment of Sarah Palin, butt thats another post.
Which one shoots like a girl?
Back to the current world crisis that we are no longer in a position to do anything about. On Friday afternoon BHO issued a call to inaction. Then yesterday he skipped a meeting of his national security team at the White House to discuss the Russian invasion of Ukraine to work on his fantasy football picks. He was briefed later by Susan Rice, because shes known for her ability to cut through the facts and present just the simple parts. Then, after they sent Sam Power to the UN to put a scold on Russia, Big Guy called Putin himself. And heres a picture to prove it:
After 90 minutes of trying unsuccessfully to persuade Pooty to pull his troops out of the Crimea be told him that he was left with no option other than to proceed with the inaction he called for on Friday afternoon. Accordingly, he cancelled plans for planning the Russian-hosted G-8 summit scheduled in June, and Putin hung up on him. So, rude letter to follow.
Im not sure what all this means, other than we are witnessing a major shift in geopolitical power.
Were no longer the one with the Big Stick
And while BHO has always thought that America was a little too big for her boots, it remains to be seen how hes going to like it when somebody takes him up on this proposition, and ends up dissing him personally in the process.
Whoa there partner! I didnt say anything about giving you my star!
Because, you know, its always easy to be generous and understanding when youre the Big Dog. Not so much fun when you suddenly find yourself to be the little dog:
Yes my little friend, my dog is is bigger and meaner than your dog:
R.I.P. Andrew: Righteous Indignation Welcome Here
When an American president has to issue veiled warnings to Vladimir Putin say something that Putin should know as second nature then something terrible has happened. Some upset has occurred. A thing that was previously there to keep the floor level has gone missing. Why else should President Obama have to make a pointless observation on TV to communicate something that Putin should know from the moment he puts on his socks in the morning? Richard Fernandez

It probably wasn’t fantasy football. It’s March, the season for NCAA basketball brackets.

I never know what is satire on this blog but did Putin really hang up on Obama?
"We wanna talk to Mr. Putin or we'll pinch you!"
The damage this POS has done to America is incalculable, and Kerry and Hillary! get credit, too!
We are seeing just the tip of the iceberg, IMHO.
Our world is in a world of hurt on ALL fronts!
We’re just jealous cuz Russia has a better Marxist-Socialist than we do... /s
This idiot will yet get us all killed! (Yes, the 0bama idiot)
Russian subs are now off the coast of Brighton Beach.
The United States and allies are about to lose access to the ISS (International Space Station), LEO (Low Earth Orbit), and the high ground to the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China.
But NASA is reaching out to the Muslim world.
Yup! “I [Ukraine] tried to get out, but they [Putin] pulled me back in!”
