“Liberals” channeling the Joint Chiefs of Staff, c. 1963

Putin's speech has many "liberals" foaming at the mouth over his threatening us, and "starting a new arms race."

For the last few days, on Facebook, I've been busily unfriending these ferocious idiots, and wondering if anyone in Washington is not among them.
