Bonfire of the absurdities.

Rage Boy, Sen. John McCain, has called Russia “a gas station masquerading as a country” and called for military aid to Ukraine[1]:
If only he [Sen. John McCain] were so militant in defense of America’s borders as he is of Ukraine’s.[2]
Not to be outdone in the hysteria dept. is Sen. Cruz:
Sen. Ted Cruz offered the subtle geopolitical insight that the situation in the Crimea is a battle of “good vs. evil.” Even Tea Party Republicans seemingly feel it is safer to engage in saber rattling against a nuclear power than give a plain statement of opposition to Amnesty.[3]
And then there's "President" Obama who in a matter of a week or two decided that "the actions and policies of persons -- including persons who have asserted governmental authority in the Crimean region without the authorization of the Government of Ukraine" (hint: "persons" = "Russians") "constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States."

This speedy decision making contrasts favorably with Obama’s inability to determine over the last five years whether the XL Pipeline poses a threat to Dakota Prairie Chickens. Some important things just can't be rushed.

  1. The most pressing "unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States" is Obama. Period.
