"We all ended up going to the Irish Times pub afterwards. And we were having a little bit too much to drink I guess. But anyway we started arguing about who won the Cold War, etc, and so we decided to settle it like men do when they've had too much to drink in the pub."

Seems rather undiplomatic. Yeah you're drunk n' all but still... No doubt that was the moment Vladimir Putin said to himself, "I will use my FSB connections to take control of Russia and show these arrogant Americans."

Maybe I'm not man enough, but I've never ever settled an argument with arm wrestling.

More and more outlandish claims until we forget what we were talking about and just drink more, sure. But not with arm wrestling.

As a guy who used to live in Rohrabacher's turf, I'm not particularly fond of the guy. But I don't think that hardly qualifies as "gushing." Seriously.

There's nothing gay about that, subs.  When you're strapped to another man, hand-to-hand at the wrestling table, your bodies glistening with sweat as hundreds of other loud, sweaty men surrounding you, you've got to be ready to take that man over the top.

What I do is I just try to take my hat and I turn it around, and it's like a switch goes on. And when the switch goes on, I feel like another person, I feel, I dunno, I feel like a... like a truck. Like a machine.

There's nothing funny about the manly sport of arm wrestling.   I drive a truck, break arms, and arm wrestle. It's what I love to do and it's what I do best. Being number one is everything. There is no second place. Second sucks.

I've heard that many men named Dana like to cross-dress.  Now what on earth could be the cause of that?  Oh, I don't know...

Like most liberal internet wank fests, it failed to raise enough money to meet their goal. Looks like some charities got some money, and a bunch of people got t-shirts out of it.

Because Americans rarely give 2 sh*ts about things outside of the US. Unless it is the royal family in England or us taking out some body or some country.

"We went out and we played touch football and Scooter Libby was one of the players and a bunch of my right-wing friends were there," Rohrabacher said. "We all ended up going to the Irish Times pub afterwards. And we were having a little bit too much to drink I guess. But anyway we started arguing about who won the Cold War, etc, and so we decided to settle it like men do when they've had too much to drink in the pub."

And Scooter made me feel special and my hands were cold and we loved the irish and we had to settle things the touch football sort of way- like men should do. In pink!

That's some funny stuff.  In all seriousness though Putin knows what he's doing.  He knows what image he is trying to project.  He knows what his people want in a leader.  And he delivers that in spades.
