No sooner do we write about the conspiracy theories flourishing on Russian social media about the meteor, which sailed over central Russia on Friday, than an actual member of the Russian government weighs in with his own. Or so the Moscow-sponsored outlet Voice of Russia says.

This old Communist bumpkin must not be aware that the US is so broke we are hitching rides on Russian space flights.

A meteorite is the more logical.

Seriously.. be thankful that it is not still the Cold War and the Soviets believe that was one of our nukes?

Be thankful that the Cold War is over for we have a president who just might do what the Hollywood-commie-loving pukes did in the movie "Fail Safe".

To placate their commie heroes the Hollywood crowd had the President of the United States order an immediate nuclear strike on New York City. (At the time I think NYC had a Republican mayor and Obama probably would pick a Republican state to nuke.)

This guy could move to America, join the Democratic party and run for Congress out of Detroit. He’d win in a landslide...

Watching several videos of the event, it was pretty gnarly. Must be something like seeing a nuke re-entry coming in, viewed from the bad side (downrange).

It comes in glowing, it comes in fast, and it blows up just about the time you’d expect an airburst. It’d be soiled undies time. I’d rather be ignorant and not have a clue what was happening.

Nope, it wasn't a sighting of a firey meteor at all. It was a flamming WHINO Lindsey Graham sighting. He was seen and cheered by the MSM as he hopped around the capital rotunda naked except for a pink bowa. Pursued CLOSELY BEHIND by a fat pink tumescient Bwarney Fwank (D) Degenerate.

Today will 'go down' in the Federal Registrar as a multiple assrhoid sighting when John Kerry tossed his military medals into the confirmation hearings held for Zero's nominee Chuck-u-Hagel, as the next Nazi Secretary of We got No-Defense Secretary!
