Put It On The Credit Card, America Russia!

The word “irony” is so poor and lacking when it comes to this story that I have first seen on the Russian news sites and, I will admit it, did not trust – Russian news agency RIA-Novosti reported: 


UNITED NATIONS, October 20 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s permanent mission to the UN has received a letter from U.S. Republican presidential candidate John McCain asking for financial support of his election campaign, the mission said in a statement on Monday.

“We have received a letter from Senator John McCain with a request for a financial donation to his presidential election campaign. In this respect we have to reiterate that neither Russia’s permanent mission to the UN nor the Russian government or its officials finance political activities in foreign countries,” the statement said.

According to Ruslan Bakhtin, press secretary of the Russian mission, the letter dated September 29 and signed by McCain, was addressed to Vitaly Churkin, Russia’s envoy to the UN, and arrived on October 16.

Strange? You ask. Why would McCain, the same guy who supported Georgia in the recent confrontation against Russia without any reservations concerning who was responsible for what, ask the hated KGB-run evil empire for money? 

Politico’s Ben Smith now confirms the story:

Bakhtin confirmed the story to Politico, and wouldn’t comment on the added oddity of the error coming from the anti-Russian McCain. “We just find it amusing,” he said.

OK, I know all of the McCain haters will obviously conclude that he is hitting foreign countries for some green while openly accusing Obama of raising too much money that comes from a variety of small donors, implying that some could be foreign donors which is illegal and super-sneaky. 

First of all, McCain’s letter to Russians (let’s affectionately call it “Dear Ivan” letter) contained a suggested donation of $5,000 which would, of course, automatically clear him of any accusations of relying on small donors, even if it added the problem of soliciting a foreign individual (one) for a donation that exceeds the individual donation limit of $2,300 (two).

Secondly, note the part where it says that “Dear Ivan” letter was addressed to Vitaly Churkin but did not include his title which can only mean one thing – McCain sent a “Dear Ivan” letter to all the Russians whose addresses the McCain campaign could get their hands on, and due to the postage costs, who happen to live in the US! That can only mean one thing: I AM GETTING A LETTER FROM MCCAIN very very soon! How awesome is that? I know, I know, I get these Obama emails everyday informing me about this and that, but I am old-fashioned, I like my solicitations in the form of paper mail (and suggesting I do illegal things).

Thirdly, I believe we have witnessed another brilliant plan for the US economy coming from John McCain. See this part of the report: 

Enclosed was a request for a donation of up to $5,000 to McCain’s election campaign to be returned with a check or permission to withdraw the money from the donor’s credit card until October 24.

In other words, not only is McCain asking for money from people who cannot legally give him money, but he’s also asking them to put it on their credit card – don’t you see the solution here? doesn’t it just jump right at you, America? This is McCain’s new economic plan: PUT IT ON THE CREDIT CARD, AMERICA!
