The cherry on the icing of the cake of that story.

Truly the smartest people in the room.

My "Pocket Oxford Russian Dictionary" has "peregruzka" as a noun meaning "overloading... stress, strain", with the plural form of the word "presgruzki" preferred.

The same dictionary has the transitive verb "to reboot" a computer as "perezagruzhit". Close... but close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. May as well not be able to differentiate between Perez Hilton and Paris Hilton.

I have a joke for this, honestly, I do. I just can't figure out what it is right now...because there are so many to choose from.

Come back to me I can do better.

It's like the Obamanauts are just bad actors with lousy props instead of policy - the political version of "Plan 9 From Outer Space" with some Russ Meyer diversionary cleavage...
Jeeze, a emergency stop-button, swiped from a jacuzzi in Switzerland? Wonder what happened when the device malfunctioned and there was no way to stop it?
They're all stage, no script. The whole deal behind Obamacare was Ed-Wood level scrambling, it was just a script-writer's line in speech meant to get applause, not any real policy effort and without even any dossier-work behind it.

So they a) stole the thing and then b) misspelled the farkin' word? Wow. These people aren't even in the kiddie portion of the gene pool!

Kristophr said...

Would that be the same Sarah Palin that was made fun of for predicting Putin would invade The Ukraine if Obama was elected, Borepatch?

( consider this post doubled and in all caps )

Kristophr said...

And ya know ... the State Department has long time protocol personnel on hand to prevent these kid of gaffs.

Apparently you have to be a Republican campaign-donor/Ambassador to actually speak to them.

Notclauswitz:

I could get into Russ Meyer's Plan Nine from Outer Space.

RabidAlien:

Don't forget c) couldn't even be bothered to render the word in cyrillic.

That strikes me as maybe even the lamest part.

At least it wasn't a "W" from a White House keyboard.

Now I see why you are depressed. I screamed in agony half-way through this story too. These are the world-changing, professionals that were going to bring a new era of Diplomacy and Respect for America.

In 10 years I hope to look back at this and laugh and laugh.
If I survive.
If America survives.
If the world survives.

Maybe I should just laugh now? Because this is the biggest joke ever played on this nation.

Nah. The Russian Foreign Minister probably took the Reset button at face value.

You mean you have no problem with us resetting our relationships with some of our former comrades?

Typical of the ineptocracy of this administration... sigh

AND...They're already pushing this woman to be the next president

For those who wanted to see the words in the Cyrillic alphabet and a better explanation than I provided:

перегрузка peregruzka

перезагрузить perezagruzit

IIRC, it was quite clearly an emergency stop button. So if Hillary stole it from an operational piece of equipment, she demonstrated three things in one small package:

1) Her disregard for the property rights of others. IOW, she's a socialist.

2) Her disregard for the _safety_ of others. (Real socialists kill people!)

3) Her incompetence.

And not in Cyrillic!

Nobody's mentioning the "Smartest Guy in the Room" thing anymore.

I wonder if my leftist former neighbor would still say he's a quick learner, or if he has to tapdance before he says that now.
