You can only claim somebody is full of it…

bombIf you are not in need of emptying your own bucket of bullshit.

If “reality” is your guide, then this week Harry Reid said a whopper.

“Since a few Republicans blocked these important sanctions last work period, Russian lawmakers voted to annex Crimea and Russian forces have taken over Ukrainian military bases,” Reid said. “It’s impossible to know whether events would have unfolded differently if the United States had responded to Russian aggression with a strong, unified voice.”

Yeah…it is ‘impossible’ to know…but it probably didn’t now did it?

Of course many Republicans have been asserting for weeks that if Obama were willing to annihilate civilization then this wouldn’t have happened either.

And, of course, there’s this.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) on Tuesday defended Russia’s annexation of Crimea, arguing that the people of the region had a right to secede from Ukraine, Buzzfeed reported.

“From what I understand, what happened in Crimea, not one person was killed. Maybe one — maybe there was one”.

Dana’s always been one to pick ’em.

“[Rohrabacher] says the Taliban are devout traditionalists—not terrorists or revolutionaries. He believes a Taliban takeover [of Afghanistan] would be a positive development.”

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
