PsiChick: Why the hell are they borderline-fetishizing Putin?
themindiswatching: Sixty years ago this Putin loving sh*t would get you blackballed./yet it's okay when they do it
lilbjorn: Seriously though, it should concern American voters that the Republicans have such a crush on Putin.
Danger Mouse: Summer Glau's Love Slave: Sarah who?She was governor of Alaska,
Mentat: They are really obsessed with Putin.
SisterMaryElephant: PsiChick: grumpfuff: PsiChick: lilbjorn: Seriously though, it should concern American voters that the Republicans have such a crush on Putin.Can someone explain WTF it is first? I mean...what?/Seriously, am I doing the autism thing here or is this as weird as it looks? Why the hell are they borderline-fetishizing Putin? It's contradicting literally every stance they've had (except for their daddy issues) since, well, the fifties at least...Because Putin doesn't put up with the homogheys, and because he's so dreamy when he gets authoritarian.Yeah, no, I mean I get the joke, but seriously, that can't be the actual reason. There's usually some internal consistency to Republicans, even if it's just 'JEEBUS' or 'OBAMA BAD'. This reads more like 'multiple people with weird BDSM fantasies they have yet to work out' and that's just...that doesn't seem possible, does it? For that many people to have the exact same sexual fantasy that they are willing to openly admit in public where people they respect can hear them?It appears there new "thing" is pointing out how MANLY and MACHO and HE-MAN they are is the new thing. Reagan was that way, riding horses and stuff. Bush cleared Bush AND rode horses.Obama? Mom-jeans gey, apparently.Now PUTIN, he's a man. A REAL MAN. It doesn't make sense that he isn't American, him being ALL MAN and all.Not only is the GOP waging a war on women, they're waging a war on men who aren't manly, too.
HotWingConspiracy: Keep telling us the American right isn't shilling for Putin.
Danger Mouse: Summer Glau's Love Slave: Sarah who?She was governor of Alaska, the GOP nominee for Vice President in 2008. Bestselling author, news commentator. There's rumors she may run for the U.S Senate this year.She's currently in the news because she was heavily ridiculed in the 2008 elections for her foreign policy experience and made the prediction that Putin would eventually invade the Ukraine.Love her, hate her, of indifferent, anyone with quantum of political knowledge is quite aware of who she is. /not surprised you don't know who she is.
Mentat: ekdikeo4: Someone answer me this, because I'm too young to remember specifics -- Did we (the US) have armed forces in a continuous conflict or "peace keeping" phase at any point during Reagan's presidency? I'm reasonably certain that between Bush 1 and now, we've had continuous forces at conflict in the middle east, but all I remember from the Reagan era was dropping bombs on Libya and somewhere in South America (Panama?). It seems weird that, if that's the case, the one guy that everyone assumed was going to start WW3 may have been the least aggressive of our leaders since I've been alive ... (not counting Carter, he wasn't aggressive at all, but his hands were tied by other's actions, and I was only 4 when Carter left office, so I can't really speak too much about that)We were keeping peace all over the place. Except for Beirut. Those motherfarkers in Grenada learned a harsh lesson after that incident.
dr_blasto: Mentat: They are really obsessed with Putin.They're obsessed with all kinds of crazy shiat. Putin just happens to work as their current anti-obama character. They'll get back to hating on him when it's convenient. They're stupid like that.
Three Crooked Squirrels: feckingmorons: Nobody wants to see Obama with his shirt off.On a phone, so not gonna post a pic, but a lot of the ladies liked the pic of him shirtless at the beach a while back. Just sayin.
