Terrific new stand-up comedy team launched. A sample:
Russia has invaded a sovereign neighboring state and threatens a democratic government elected by its people. Such an action is unacceptable in the 21st century.—George W. Bush
Ha ha ha!
The Russians were prepared to take advantage of an opportunity and did so very aggressively. —Defense Secretary Robert Gates
Yuk yuk yuk!
Russian actions, in clear violation of international law, have no place in 21st century Europe.—John McCain
I’m holding my sides! I’m dying here! That would be, um, the international law on, like, invading foreign countries for no reason? Right? I’m howling!
Too bad for the Georgian people, now at the mercy of Russian chauvinist thugs. Who is to blame??
