Did you guys know that Vladimir Putin is a black belt at judo?
Did you know he has now produced an instructional judo DVD?
Let me say that again: you can purchase a DVD of the Prime Minister of Russia demonstrating judo techniques.
I just thought you all should know that, with Christmas coming up and all.
This is troubling. We now have an Instructional Video Gap between us and the Russians. The next U.S. President must quickly mobilize our national resources–the best of the best–to close the gap. Might I suggest a few:
George Bush: Public Speaking
Sarah Palin: Debate
Richard Fuld: Corporate Governance
Dick Cheney: Marksmanship
America should be teaching the world by example and instructional video, not Putin and the Russians.
I’m going to assume you mean the video game character and NOT the totally made of awesome band from Seattle, aye?
Putin is ex-KGB (and I use “ex” very loosely). He could probably kill you ballpoint-pen ala Jason Bourne if you pissed him off during a meeting. Or if you sneezed.
So you see, this is all hard proof that Reagan in fact *didn’t* end the Cold War! It just got a little lukewarm for a while. Observe:
We need torches and long Congressional hearings, NOW. I think the question America needs to ask itself when voting in a few short weeks is: Which party will be tough on those commie sonsabitches?
