Elections have consequences
Reheating the Cold War is not a good idea, but don’t tell that to John McCain or Lindsey Graham. The queens of saber-rattling are playing the get-tough game when it comes to Putin and the Ukraine. McCain even chastised his GOP colleagues for voting against aid for the Ukrainians. Remember, like they did with veterans benefits, and unemployment insurance? Send money to Ukrainians that you would not spend on your own? How would like to explain that to your constituents, after trying to convince them that government food would only make them lazy? Just what we need; lazy Ukrainians.
“I just hope we don’t lose Alaska”
Not to be outdone, Lindsey Graham seems bent on blaming a namby-pamby President for Putin’s aggression in the Ukraine. He wants our President to rally Europe to oppose ‘The Poot’. According to Graham, if we had exhibited the same strength in Benghazi, and everywhere else in the world, this would never have happened. One bright spot. Sarah Palin as the first babushka. They would make a nice couple. Lots in common.
Yes, you can still duck and cover!
So what do we do when the shooting starts? Time for a refresher course in Armageddon, to the delight, I am sure, of all those Doomsday Preppers who have snarfed up all the powdered eggs in existence.
“The best advice for surviving a nuclear bomb is to be somewhere else when it goes off. If that doesn’t work out for you, though, a recent study carried out at the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) provides some simple guidance for maximizing your chances of survival.”
