Putin Punts Rather Than Hits The Line

President Vladimir Putin is engaged in some form of play, but the rest of the world just does not know which sport is currently on his mind. After demanding that his stooges in the Russian Parliament grant him the right to send the Army into Ukraine, he decided to reverse course, and now asked the upper house to revoke what they gave him the right to do. In reality, this move prevents Russia from winding up as the most hated nation in Europe, and all but ensures that business leaders will think twice before investing in dear Mother Russia. Even as he spoke, separatists shot down a Ukraine helicopter that was carrying personnel whose job it was to install equipment to monitor the existing cease fire. It goes without saying, this is one cease fire that is currently firing away.

I have been informed that Ted Cruz would like to investigate the role played by President Obama in the entire Ukraine mess. Naturally, John McCain wants the US Air Force to bomb Ukraine and end separatism in that nation. Sarah Palin is calling for an investigation into the role played by Hillary Clinton in the Ukraine. Oh, Governor Rick Perry when asked to comment wanted to know if this Ukraine was near the border of Texas.
