Sorry for all the LOLs, can't help it, this is too ridiculous to do anything else.

John McCain, the man who expects to be taken seriously even after picking the Wasilla Warblegarbler as his VP has made an absolute idiot of himself yet again.

You know where to go for teh lols.

As most, if not all of us on The Great Orange Satan know, John McCain was telling anyone who is still listening to him that he was going to counter Putin's op-ed in the NYT with an op-ed in Pravda.

This is where the fun starts................

Pravda knew nothing about it. Boris Komotsky, Pravda’s editor, took to the party’s website to answer, in a piece titled Sen. John McCain wants to answer? saying, “There is only one Pravda in Russia, it is the organ of the Communist Party, and we have heard nothing about the intentions of the Republican senator.”
Oops
It turns out that The Cable, Foreign Policy’s website, in its attempt to set up the deal, did not contact Pravda. They contacted pravda.ru, a website which has nothing to do with Pravda or with the Communist Party (Joshua Keating at The Slate calls it “whose content is a kind of cross between WorldNetDaily and the National Enquirer”) instead of gazeta-pravda.ru, which is where you will find THE Pravda.
Zyuganov says, sure McCain can write something for Pravda. But he has to follow the party line to do so.

    Our answer to McCain is this: if you support the position of the Russian Communist Party on Syria, then we will publish your article.

I think Rachel Maddow said it for all of us....

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.
