Troll of the day

The hit counts must be down at Talking Points Memo because here's Josh Marshall leaping for some of that conservative outrage that generates traffic --

So that's who you're dealing with [in Ukraine]: some mix of civil war reenactor or Tea Partier decked out in revolutionary garb, with a mix of reckless aggression and comical incompetence. Here we have them break into nursing homes to photographs senator's comatose wives; there Putin gives them heavy armaments designed for full scale land war in Europe.

Because of course professional militaries never shoot down civilian aircraft, everything that Bashar al-Assad has done with Russian weapons has been completely responsible, and never before Putin has Russia blundered into feeding a war that it eventually could not control!
