Right now, Putin says he "reserves the right to use all means at our disposal" in the Ukraine. In other words, he’s willing to go the "full Bush in Iraq." He should just call the invasion "Operation Ukrainian Freedom." Then he can get on a battleship off the coast of Crimea and pronounce the entire thing a huge success.
Is Putin crazy? German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke at length with Putin and reportedly thinks he might be going insane. Maybe we should have Dennis Rodman talk to him. After all, Rodman speaks 'crazy.' Putin has been living in a parallel information universe for so long that he’s starting to believe his own propaganda - a situation I like to call "the Fox News effect."
Speaking of insane people, Sarah Palin discussed the situation in the Ukraine last night with Sean Hannity. Wow. Talk about an echo chamber of idiocy. I love it when Sarah Palin and Sean Hannity bounce ideas off of each other, because actual ideas can’t do anything except bounce off of those two cement-heads. Seriously, there is an international crisis, and these are the two people that Fox News chooses to analyze it for the edification of their audience? They’d be better off watching the Kardashians discuss the Crimea.
In other news of the stupid, Rep. Steve King is now worried that people will pretend to be gay so that they can sue businesses for discrimination. No, seriously - he really said that. King's idea sounds like the script for an Adam Sandler movie - one that got rejected! Steve King has clearly gone insane. He should resign from Congress and become the leader of Russia. I know, he can’t really become leader of Russia. But if we tell him he’s the leader of Russia, I bet he'll believe us.
Finally, Rush Limbaugh says that the only reason "12 Years a Slave" won the Oscar for Best Picture is that it had the word "slave" in its title. Rush also said that he didn’t actually see the movie. Duh! It’s an anti-slavery movie. If he had seen the movie, I'm sure that Rush would have cried at the end of it, when the main character escapes from slavery. It’s just that Rush would be crying for a different reason than most people. "That’s so tragic! That poor slave owner is out the cost of a slave!"

Once again, Jon Stewart hit the nail on the head when it comes to that crazy Russian nut Vladimir Putin and the ego trip/invasion he's dragged his nation into in the Crimean peninsula. Thank you Jon!
