I've been pretty busy today but I had to laugh at this. CNN:
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has accused the United States of orchestrating the conflict in Georgia to benefit one of its presidential election candidates.So, Vlad, are you going to tell us which candidate you have in mind? Perhaps the one who said that he looked in your eyes and saw the letters 'K,' 'G' and 'B?' Spill it, Komrad!
In an exclusive interview with CNN's Matthew Chance in the Black Sea city of Sochi on Thursday, Putin said the U.S. had encouraged Georgia to attack the autonomous* region of South Ossetia.
See, Putin has McCain in mind, of course, but the Tsar is just yapping for the benefit of the home crowd. What he might not have suspected when he decided to float that ridiculous assertion, however, is that, were he to name McCain, it would make it more likely that McCain would become president and not less. And you know that Putin would prefer to deal with Obama.
Keeping talking, Vlad.
*Was the region autonomous when Georgia went in? Or was it still located within the internationally recognized borders of Georgia?
