The GOP chicken hawks are continuing to heap praise on Vladimir Putin because of his willingness to invade other countries at will. Because you know, that's how you prove how tough and manly you are when you're a head of state. You can now add Sarah Palin to the chorus, as she praises Putin for ... and this so funny I had to laugh ... wrestling bears:
“Look, the perception of Obama, of him and his potency across the world is one of such weakness," Palin told Fox News' Sean Hannity. "People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil. They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates.”
He drills for oil! He wrestles bears! He invades countries!

Them thar Ruskies got a real president! First, he's the right color! He drives a 4x4 pickup with a set of truck balls! He's got a gun rack in the back window! If Obama were a real president, why he'd be chewin' baccy, ridin' bareback, and shooting his best friend in the face! Then go eat a steak and fuck his wife. RUMSFELD!!!

I'm sure the president is secure enough to find this all rather amusing, if he's paying any attention at all, which I doubt. But for the Washington media establishment, which never met a war it didn't like to embed, such tripe is good copy.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
