WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a sharply critical op-ed piece for the Russian Web site Pravda, Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) called Russian President Vladimir Putin “a brutal, freedom-hating tyrant” and challenged Mr. Putin to tear down the Berlin Wall.

“The Wall stands as a symbol of your failed, repressive system,” Sen. McCain said. “Until you tear it down, the world will see you and your Soviet goons for what you are: relics destined for the dustbin of history.”



“Mr. Putin, tear down that wall,” Sen. McCain’s editorial pointedly concluded.

@edgarblythe,
This gave me a chuckle, but are you sure this isn't really the Onion?

Back when he was running against Obama, there was a news article about McCain sending his wife to Georgia, it came up while talking to some old work pals and one of the men said, Oh good, her plane is probably touching down in Atlanta as we speak.

No, Borowitz is not with the Onion. I follow him daily, elsewhere.

To come under the heading of satire it would have been better to have humuor in it somewhere .

Do you think the old man is going the way of Ronny Raygun?

@RABEL222,
Well, I hope I'm not the first to tell you, but Ronnie left for his final reward. I guess we all will at sometime, but I'm sure John isn't planning a trip anytime soon.

@Ionus,
I think the fact that you (and probably others) don't think it is funny...is humorous!

Doesn't that make it satire?

@Frank Apisa,
No, it is just too way out for my humuor . Couldnt they have chosen something more believable ? To be funny that requires way too much hatred and it shows as requiring you to be snickering and sneering .

@Ionus,
This Just In:

Quote:
CRAWFORD, TEXAS (The Borowitz Report)—Just hours after the United States Senate voted to reverse key provisions of the Patriot Act, former President George W. Bush said that he regretted that the law had been partially repealed before he ever got a chance to read it.

“At the time when it was being passed and whatnot, people around the White House were saying it was a really good law,” Bush said at his ranch in Crawford, Texas. “I remember saying to myself, ‘I really need to read that.’ ”


Bush said that right after he signed the Patriot Act into law, “I wrote on a little Post-It note, ‘READ PATRIOT ACT.’ So it was definitely something I was meaning to do. But I guess it was one of those things I never did get around to.”

Now that the law has been partially reversed, Bush said, “I suppose it’s a little late in the game to start reading it,” but he indicated that he still “might check it out just to see what all the fuss was about.”

“I think they have it down at my Presidential library, so maybe one of these days I’ll set aside some time and read it,” he said, before adding, “Ha ha, who am I kidding? That’s not gonna happen.”
