http://twitter.com/#!/AaronWorthing/status/440180462485774336 We’ve already seen what might be John Kerry’s most ludicrous remark about Russia yet. Earlier today, he made more of his thoughts known on Twitter, which is always dangerous. http://twitter.com/#!/JohnKerry/status/440147506941292544 http://twitter.com/#!/JohnKerry/status/440151727044431872 http://twitter.com/#!/JohnKerry/status/440160668616900608 How inspiring. http://twitter.com/#!/PolitiBunny/status/440150588198645761 http://twitter.com/#!/ThePantau/status/440147244499468289 Not at all.

http://twitter.com/#!/KevinNathanNBC/status/434360572671709186 As Twitchy reported, NBC hacks are shamelessly fawning over Vladimir Putin during the Sochi Olympics coverage. The suck-uppery has been disgraceful and Garry Kasparov called out the network for its Putin “propaganda.“ An NBC affiliate continued the arse-kissing. NBC Connecticut’s Kevin Nathan squeed madly over being super close to Putin. http://twitter.com/#!/KevinNathanNBC/status/434422753304002560 http://twitter.com/#!/KeithMorehouse/status/434532320260157440 Duh.
