@HerbWolfe the experts were wrong!
Sarah Palin predicted Russia would invade #Ukraine. Romney said Russia was a threat. Both were mocked; both were right. Both are leaders.
@flip934 they shouldn’t vote them in
@flip934 I don’t favor disarming. I just don’t think the military spending is always the most efficient way of deterrence. Better weapons.
@flip934 you seem to foolishly think the choice is between going to war with Russia and being Putin’s bitch.
@flip934 No, most people ruled by tyrants deserve them.
@flip934 not every conflict is appeasement circa 1938
@flip934 Strategy matters.
Shocked that Russia is intervening to maintain port deal that they signed w/ a democratically elected Ukraine president until 2042. #Crimea
You mean there are Russians in #Crimea? Oh no. Suddenly this is more complicated than John McCain said!
It’s only a matter of time before neocons unironically cite Tennyson on #Crimea: “Theirs not to reason why, theirs but to do and die.”
It’s just dishonest to say that the United States is isolationist for not wanting to spend her treasure and her sons on the #Crimea.
Be honest. If Mexico or Canada were about to split in two do you think the U.S. would remain on the sidelines? Why should Russia? #Crimea
Hey remember all the experts who last week predicted Russia wouldn’t invade #Ukraine? They were wrong. So why are we listening to them now?
I’ve really enjoyed trotting out my Risk-inspired geography knowledge on #Ukraine I’m not so arrogant as to believe I know what to do.
#Ukraine is one of the most corrupt white countries on the planet. Save us the lectures about the past thug. This will not end well.
I’m glad you decided to have children but your child is not the center of everyone’s universe on this red eye.
@curtmonierot Thanks, Curt.

@EWErickson Hi. I’m going to in Atlanta on the 27th through the 2nd. I’d love to meet up if you have a chance.
@Squee451 It’s not economic policy; it’s constitutional policy. It’s not tolerating discrimination; it’s affirming religious freedom.
Do the right thing, Governor Brewer. Sign it.
Freedom of speech means nothing if it doesn’t include the right to be an asshole & suffer the consequences.
The Islamic Republic of Iran is 35 this week. Something tells me it won’t make it to be a senior citizen.
It’s not bigotry to prefer people like you. It’s human.
@Gavin_McInnes when is the west coast tour of How to be a Man?
Gavin_McInnes The only person who suffers more than the vegan at a restaurant is the poor bastard sitting next to him.
Being sick is terrible.
Paul Gigot of Wall Street Journal told me yesterday that he hated me while I was in NYC. #sorrynotsorry I exposed liars & stopped Syria war.

@jrperk21 but WhatsApp data is nonexistent…
Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp is for the same reason as its listing of 50 genders: it wants to buy younger, hipper crowd.
Pierre Omidyar’s new journalistic enterprise sure has a lot of white people working for it.

Sad to say this but Raymond Tusk has greater political sense than the Koch brothers.
@rogerkimball we have reached an age of post satire because anything satirized quickly becomes true.
JacobHornberger I find it interesting that U.S. officials oppose crackdowns in Venezuela & Ukraine but love them in Egypt & Bahrain.
It isn’t isolationism if you want all of the facts before you want your government to intervene; it’s humility.
WhatsApp: The inside story (Wired UK) wired.co.uk/news/archive/2…
I don’t mean this in a cruel way but could someone please explain why WhatsApp is worth $19 billion?
How would Cruz even rebut the stupid charge that “he is out for himself”? Destroy the party? Become a Democrat or a RINO?
The argument that Ted Cruz is “only looking out for himself” is one of the stupidest in politics today. What about Boehner & McCain et al.?
Let the record show that NYC sucks.
School children have to make up their snow days at the end of the year; DC bureaucrats should have them cut into their vacations.
@Sam_Schulman I didn’t know that it was lost.
patrickxwest All countries that used to have ‘The’ infront of their names - Ukraine, Sudan, Lebanon - are in peril. Coincidence BBC? I think not.
@jenpfluke I have friends in Ukraine, too. I’m fine with you spending your dollars; I’m not fine with you sending our boys to another war.
The pro-communist Abraham Lincoln Brigade was willing to go & fight against tyranny, not tweet about it so that others would fight for them.
Re: #Ukraine intervention. Follow John Quincy Adams: “We are friend to liberty everywhere but custodian only of our own.”
@jenpfluke “We are the friend of liberty everywhere but custodian only of our own.”—John Quincy Adams.
Felon, democrat Mel Reynolds busted for pervert behavior in Zimbabwe. God only knows why he was there.
If you are complaining about what’s going on in #Ukraine from the safety of your keyboard & calling for intervention, you are a coward.
@Sam_Schulman We should resist losing our “the”. United States of America doesn’t sound as pretty as The United States of America.
@JustinRaimondo dude they already did.
JustinRaimondo I wonder how long it will be before Western leaders start floating the idea of a “peacekeeping” force in Ukraine? 10, 0, 8, 7….
House of Cards is how DC wishes it was. In truth, it’s a poor imitation of the Office.
If peaceful demonstrators want sympathy they shouldn’t be violent rioters. Just a thought. #Ukraine
I wish American officials cleared out the Occupy Wall Street thugs with riot police. #Ukraine
No, Ukraine. It’s pussy riot, not parliament riot.
You heard it here first: #Ukraine protests are astroturfing operation by anti-Putin forces to ruin Olympic Games.
#ukraine protestors occupy govt building, riot & demand European style taxes and they are the good guys?
Put me down with the pro-Russian faction in the #Ukraine. You shouldn’t just dissolve the government when you lose.
When it comes to attention getting antics John McCain is the Justin Bieber of American foreign policy.
Life in LA: Running into self described illegal immigrants all the time.
If John McCain had had his way we would already be occupying Russia. And Iran. And Syria. And N Korea. #Ukraine
It’s hilarious that Charlie Rose and his panel of presidential “experts” are so ill-informed about American history.
Hey maybe the reason people are rioting in the Ukraine is that American media is in Russia & rioters want him to look bad?
Senator McCain can’t even pronounce CHA-vez but he’s an expert on Venezuela now. Give me a break.
@instapundit Still, it would have been nice to have a president I could disagree with without being called a racist.
My mistake: John McCain called for acts of war in the Ukraine, Venezuela, AND Syria all in 24 hours. I left out Syria previously.
@freddoso LOL. I actually missed one. He called for invading Syria today, too.
I’d like to apologize to all of my friends who said that Sen. John Mccain loved war. You were right. Your check is in the mail. #Ukrainian
Can we please stop praising John McCain’s war record every time he suggests we bomb, invade, embargo, sanction, another country?
Only John McCain could call for war against Ukraine & Venezuela all in one day.
@ZaneAlbayati04 I like Charles Evans Hughes in ’16.
Who is your favorite presidential loser? That is, someone who won the nomination but lost the general?
@alanagoodman it’s just that it is more likely to be taken seriously at a time when she is in the public eye. Why waste material now?
@alanagoodman why are you releasing all the good Clinton material before she has announced? Timing is important…

I can’t believe how racist the Olympics is. Seriously. Why are Canada, Holland, & Norway hogging all the medals?
@BreannaDeutsch I do what I can.
New York Times headline: “Economy and Crime Spur New Puerto Rican Exodus” Establishment response: “Let’s make them a state!!!!!!”
What’s the gay equivalent of the Black Power salute from Olympics in Mexico in ’68? Ireen Wüst just isn’t doing it for me. #Sochi
Norway, nation of 5 million, oil rich, home of the Nobel prize, 7 Olympic medals & counting. What’s your excuse Mid East? No snow? #sochi
Where do those of us who said the CBO massively miscalculated the Obamacare costs go for our I told you so coupons?
I’d say we should give all gay Russians asylum in America but I don’t want to take away jobs from hard working rent boys.
Laissez les bon temps rouler! (Also, I’m really enjoying doing research in one of America’s beautiful cities!)
LeonHWolf The Sochi Olympics have accomplished what Stalin couldn’t - the American press is reporting unfavorably on Russia.

It’s sad that it took the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman to arrest those guys. Don’t sell drugs to famous people.
Those of us who favor ending the drug war must be intellectually & morally honest enough to recognize that drugs do kill talented people.
Hey maybe the fact that Philip Seymour Hoffman liked to get high killed him & not liberalism?
I only ask that Hollywood stars do what I have asked my church to do: stop f–ing children. No more, no less.
I’m sure Sandra Fluke’s father in law (who is a major Democrat donor) had nothing to do with the decision to run for Congress.
@Anwardawn can we chat on Facebook? What’s your link? I wanted to ask about an interview you once did.
Why do drug dealers sell drugs to famous people? Don’t they worry about overdoses? Do they charge a premium? Things I wonder about…
