By way of our friends at the Oregon Commentator comes this video of the Ukrainian Parliament “discussing” extending the country’s lease to a Russian naval base. Discussing, as in “throwing eggs and smoke bombs.”
God, it looks like a senior-edition of Wild and Krazy Kids. Remember when people were mortified that what’s-his-face-Republican-guy shouted “You lie!” at Obama?
P.S. On a tangentially related note, Dick Cheney recently said in an interview that telling Patrick Leahy to “go fuck yourself” on the floor of the Senate was “sort of the best thing I ever did.” Keep on rockin’ in the free world, Mr. Cheney. Say what you will about the man, but you have to kind of respect his unrestrained chutzpah.
P.P.S. It’s a tradition among my roommates to announce “Dick Cheney shot a man in the face” at random moments, to keep alive the knowledge that, once upon a time, the vice president of the United States of America shot his friend in the face with a shotgun … and then his friend apologize for getting in the way of his birdshot.
