Stranger than Fiction....
“Oh Brave New World, that has such People in it!”-Miranda, in the Tempest.
Arch-Paleo-Conservative Pat Buchannan has a Man Crush on Vladmir Putin.
Not only is the GOP, somehow, the RED Party...but the Far Right has the Vapors over the often shirtless leader of frikking Russia!...the guy who hunts bears with sharpened sticks, and hates Queers just as much as our own Homophobes.
“The great thing about irony is that it splits things apart, gets up above them so we can see the flaws and hypocrisies and duplicates.”
David Foster Wallace
“While his stance as a defender of traditional values has drawn the mockery of Western media and cultural elites, Putin is not wrong in saying that he can speak for much of mankind. “
and this string of misshapen pearls:
“He is seeking to redefine the "Us vs. Them" world conflict of the future as one in which conservatives, traditionalists and nationalists of all continents and countries stand up against the cultural and ideological imperialism of what he sees as a decadent west.
"We do not infringe on anyone's interests," said Putin, "or try to teach anyone how to live." The adversary he has identified is not the America we grew up in, but the America we live in, which Putin sees as pagan and wildly progressive.
Without naming any country, Putin attacked "attempts to enforce more progressive development models" on other nations, which have led to "decline, barbarity and big blood," a straight shot at the U.S. interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Egypt. “
What it must be like, in that tiny little mind!
To be dislodged from the truck anew, each morning!
Pseudo-Birchers, coming out(!!) as Pro-Russia!
Hating on America!(Ha!)
I see an opportunity for a real “Christian” Exodus...Russia as the New Land of the Free, with Unfettered Greed, and little use for all those “Progressive Developments”, like Minimum Wages, Safety Nets and Environmental Laws...
It's almost as perfectly Tea-ish as Somalia.
Self Deportation....it's what Real Amerrcuns do.
