Here's a gift tip for today's occasion. For the U.S., how about sending an ambassador to Ireland? This is the second St. Paddy's Day in a row that Ireland does not have a U.S. ambassador.
Today, Putin recognized Crimea as an independent nation. For now.
Given how Putin behaved with respect to Ukraine's independent status, I'd be worried if I were a Crimean and I'd probably kiss Sebastopol goodbye forever no matter what. Sort of like how the mistress (Crimea) will feel after the husband (Putin) cheated on an and left his wife (Ukraine). If the husband will cheat once, he'll do it again.
McCain is hoping he'll get onto Putin's sanctions list, which sort of tells you that Obama's sanctions so far are a joke. The sanctions need to have some real bite.
I'll take Joe over Rand or Ted, any day of the week. I remember when Scarborough was one of those Gingrich firebrand conservatives, and now he's looked at as a RINO, though I doubt his political views have changed much.
