No, John, We Aren’t; No, Sarah, They Didn’t

According to US Senator John McCain, “we are all Ukrainians.”

I can’t speak for anyone else, but as for myself, no, I’m not a Ukrainian.

And if McCain is a Ukrainian, what the hell is he doing representing Arizona in the US Senate instead of serving in the Verkhovna Rada?

Meanwhile McCain’s 2008 running mate, Sarah Palin, claims to have predicted the current turn of events back then, referring to this campaign gem:

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 …

Interesting, but there’s a problem with it: Russia didn’t “invade Georgia.” Georgia invaded South Ossetia, attacked Russian troops there, and got its ass whipped. There’s a difference.

I confess that I’m not a huge fan of US president Barack Obama’s foreign and military policies, which seem to amount to pretty much serving George W. Bush’s third and fourth terms.

On the other hand, McCain and Palin continue to prove that we could have done much, much worse when it comes to US military misadventurism.

    Sarah Palin has yet to contribute an intelligent, original thought to any political discourse. And John McCain is, well, John McCain.
