If we could just ban them all from coming back,
it would be a start.

Putin is pretty powerful, I wonder if he could ban them from the United States, too?

I think this is Russia’s way of mocking the uselessness of the US Sanctions.

Those sanctioned on both sides will simply laugh at them, and the mocked Obama will have to ratchet it up again to prove his “Manhood”.

Then it will get interesting.

McCain belongs in Guantanamo with his terrorist buddies. In Syria, he friended the terrorists. In Ukraine, he and his US Senate buddies went there and tried to enable the coup government to start a shooting war with Russia. His goal seems to be the advent of a war of global annihilation.

I wonder if that was kind of the point. I wonder if the Russians had to look someone up who was on the US Sanctions List. ("Who? Who's he? Well, I guess he can't take his kids to Disneyland. *smirk*'

I wish they'd have put ME on it- I would call their diplomatic mission in DC and request a certificate, suitable for framing- LOL. The Russians, who are plainly saying that the whole thing is a joke, would probably send me one.

Well, we now know that in the Vietnam era the KGB ratcheted up a disinformation campaign. They started the rumors of our soldiers committing henious acts against the Vietnam population. Then a certain witness went in front of congress and testified:

“They told stories that at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam”

The KGB couldn’t believe how effective their efforts had become.

Now, who was that witness? John Kerry
Who was part of the KGB effort? Vladimer Putin

Consider also that Putin has stated that the collapse of the USSR was one of histories greatest tragedies.

Once one considers this information, it is pretty clear where this is headed and it is pretty clear how Putin expects the USA to respond.

>> If we had any guts, we would punish Russia by sending McCain and Boehner to live in Russia! It would be a win/win because they would fit right in! <<

I think a win-win scenario would be if we sent the "abolish the 17th amendment" types to Russia where they can live out their idealized fantasy world (Russia's Senate consists entirely of locally appointed political hacks who rubber stamp whatever United Russia/Putin wants, and cannot be held accountable by the people). In exchange, we'll take all the pro-freedom Russians who oppose big government socialist policies.

Their argument about corrupt state legislatures is always "if you don't like your state legislature, MOVE to a different state instead of CHOOSING to live in a corrupt hellhole", so we can throw it right back at them and let them MOVE to a country that has a pre-17th amendment type system that's more to their liking than having to deal with an elected Senate where they can vote out John McCain and Mary Landrieu.

Toche' :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federation_Council_%28Russia

Unlike the State Duma and the provincial legislatures throughout Russia, the Council is not directly elected, but instead chosen by territorial politicians, resembling in some respects to the structure of the U.S. Senate prior to the Seventeenth Amendment in 1913. The only exclusion was the first Federation council (1994–1996), which was elected on December 12, 1993. Critics to the Federation Council stress that the upper house is an inherently undemocratic body made for regional elites, with little say from the Russian people. Since the reforms advocated and passed by President Putin in 2000, critics have also charged that the Council resembles more of a rubber stamp body for the Kremlin than an independent legislative body. Many senators, including Council Chairman Sergey Mironov, are viewed as close allies of Putin and the United Russia party, despite rules which explicitly spell out that political factions are not allowed. Since Mironov’s rise in the Council in 2002, the Kremlin’s position on impending legislation is closely communicated to and coordinated with the Chairman and the committee and commission chairs. This top-down approach has meant that the Council votes with extreme efficiency, backing Kremlin positions on legislation nearly all of the time.

Rush came up with a good line this morning. Here it is not verbatum.

Obama has done his most severe sanction against Putin.

Are you ready... Here it is.

Obama is unfrending Putin on Facebook!
