Skip to comments.Confused senator attempts to publish column in Communist newspaper from distant past

Sen. John McCain, a man of his word, published his editorial a stirring defense of the rights to free speech, dissent and political expression in Russias Pravda, just like he said he would.
One small problem: As people are now finally pointing out, this isnt the famous Pravda. After the Soviet Union was made to collapse, its official propaganda organ was sold off and eventually closed. There is no more Pravda, omnipresent national newspaper in which the Kremlin disseminates the party line to the oppressed masses. There is now Pravda, the struggling, thrice-weekly organ of the remains of the Communist Party, and Pravda.ru, a sensationalistic online-only news site few people in Russia take seriously.
So, after Vladimir Putin published a provocative column in Americas most prominent and trusted newspaper, John McCain basically submitted his response to the Russian equivalent of the Daily Blaze. After you read his impassioned words, you can scroll down to Pravdas enlightening photos of celebrities section. Or why not check out Lady Pravda for your love and beauty tips? McCain really couldnt have found a better way to illustrate that hes a befuddled Cold War relic with no idea whatsoever what Russia is like in 2013.
Senile fool needs to go out with a suicide vest in a jihad somewhere.
There’s a reason he graduated in the bottom of his class and, unlike his father and grandfather, never made flag rank.
What a grandstanding jackass.
Says it ALL~!!!!!
Actually, the online Pravda is quite entertaining. It features stories on UFOs, Bigfoot, lost civilizations and Martians. I enjoy it to get away from the depressing news featured by the MSM communist press here in America.
One story had real Russian bears organizing and rolling boulders onto passing motorists. The Russians hired a top-notch hunter to clean up the unbearable bear problem. He was never heard from again. Let’s hope McCain suffers a similar fate.
Think he spent too much time in the Hanoi Hilton.
McLame needs to follow it up by writing an article for DebkaFiles.
Basically, he wrote an editorial for the Russian Version of the Weekly World News. How did this guy become a Presidential candidate?
McCain was turned in Vietnam for prostitutes, and he stayed turned.
End of story.
RATS!! You beat me to it! They could at least have noted, more correctly, that McCain suffers from dementia, not just confusion. Next time.
I think McClain should give some thought to retirement .... maybe write an autobiography? I know I’d sure like to hear his version of how he crashed three multi-million dollar fighter planes.
“Basically, he wrote an editorial for the Russian Version of the Weekly World News.”
Well, you’re right. What else can be said?
