Moonbats shouldn't do foreign policy

Really, HuffPo, did you have to publish this?
In classic "Wag The Dog" scenario there is a neat little war brewing between American and Russian proxies, and real Russian troops, in the Caucacus Mountains on the Russian border.
It couldn't come at a better time for the Republicans.
McCain gets to act and talk tough against the Russians, while Obama is on vacation in Hawaii, issuing "can't we all get along statements."
It perfectly augments Republican campaign points: Obama is not ready. He is not tough, experienced enough to deal with a dangerous world.
The Russian invasion of Georgia was an unjustified and unilateral aggression by Putin's neo-Stalinist regime. Thousands ae dead, and thousands will die yet. Georgians are begging the West for assistance, and view our failure to intervene as a betrayal. A world crisis looms, of tremendous geopolitical significance.

To interpret all this through the narrow prism of domestic election politics -- and especially to invoke paranoid fear of a bogus "Wag the Dog" scenario -- is so far beneath the contempt of serious people that I hesitated even to notice it.

What is wrong with you people?
