    It's amazing to me that they actually published something like this. Pravda is effectively a mouthpiece of the Kremlin.

    Not really . Btw, McCain could stand to practice writing. It's rough around the edges. Perhaps next time he can delegate it to one of his aides.

    Dear Senator McCain, I respect your service but shut up.

    I need to follow-up on Ed’s post, partly because the demand among righties for news that embarrasses Maverick is inexhaustible, partly because people who are snickering about this are snickering for the wrong reason, and partly because I’m irritated that even a dumb counter-troll to Putin’s op-ed in the Times can’t be carried off correctly by American leaders these days. McCain’s being goofed on because the “Pravda” website to which he submitted his anti-Putin op-ed actually isn’t affiliated with the newspaper he obviously had in mind when he told Jake Tapper that he’d “love a commentary in Pravda.” He was thinking, surely, of the “Pravda” that every American of a certain age knows and loathes as a mouthpiece for Russian communists. That Pravda still exists, sort of, but it has nothing to do with the website. He baited the wrong “Pravda”!
    By the way, McCain may have submitted his anti-Putin op-ed to the wrong “Pravda” Hot Air

    The GOP octopus of fright-wing tentacles will be strangling Sen. McCain in no time.
    How dare McCain speak back to their new KGB hero, Putin.

    I read it earlier today. I'm glad it came off pretentious to Russians. Putin needed to be smacked around for his own audaciousness.

    Pravda is no such thing. It's really just a Russian blog.. with only about 100,000 circulation.

    So you think that we should engage Syria with our military, side with the Free Syrian army which is backed by Islamists from the Muslim Brotherhood who are fighting side by side and sometimes with AlQaeda. While Assad says he will give up his chemical weapons albeit the offer is so convoluted it will never happen, the rebels that McCain backs say they are keeping theirs. That's just swell.

    Putin is the only reason we haven't bombed Syria by now, well than and the fact that Obama has no clue what he's doing. For me, I'm glad the Russians stopped our military involvement in Syria. We have no business there other than having some kind of dick comparing contest with yet another Middle Eastern country.
