Ronan Farrow on Sunday morning: 'How do you solve a problem like Putin?' Yes, out loud, and caught by TPC writer Hardybear!

Our wonderful friend Lauren Mayer ('Psychomom') then turned 'How do you solve a problem like Putin?' into the wonderful satirical song it was destined to be. Thanks, Lauren!

From YouTube:

The despotic, shirtless tyrant is more unpredictable than a musical theatre character!


Vlad the Mad Imagines Hillary Clinton a 'Weak' Lady




Written by guest contributor, "hardybear" of the wonderful Free Range Talk site:

Putin, Putin, Putin.

Of all of the women in all the world, you had to choose Hillary Rodham Clinton to publicly accuse of weakness. And of being a Lady!

You silly, silly man.

You would do well to invest in an Iron Jock for those Imperial Cajones, dude. American womenfolk know how to brandish a knee. And we are about as fed up as we can BE with the Regressive GOP.Tea War on Women at home - we're presently stockpiling trans-vaginal probes for future pop-prostate exams.

Pushing boundaries in the Crimea is one thing. Crossing this demeaning line is quite another. Let's just pray the man had a shirt on when he penned the following sexist-on-steroids poke in the eye to Hillary Clinton. From The Moscow Times.

"It's better not to argue with women. But Ms Clinton has never been too graceful in her statements," Putin was quoted as saying in a transcript published on the Kremlin website.

"When people push boundaries too far, it's not because they are strong but because they are weak. But maybe weakness is not the worst quality for a woman," Putin added in the interview.

We will have enough home-grown sexist rants and rages between now and the Sweet Sixteen to fill a wide swath of Siberia, but heaven help them if they limbo low enough to declare weakness perfectly fine in a female.  #YesAllWomen will show the Regressive Asshattery just how strong American dames are.

If Vlad The Shirtless Lampooner starts on Elizabeth Warren, I'll personally activate the posse. Certainly Pussy Riot would jump aboard post haste.
