You're reading: Flapdoodle strikes again

This story comes to mind because similar compositions
can be found now — in Ukraine of all places — concerning the upcoming
election of the American president in November. Here it is:

“Electing Mitt Romney as president will … ensure the
independence of developing democracies like Ukraine and Georgia.”

It is part of the narrative that appeared recently on the
Kyiv Post website, authored by Republicans Abroad for Ukraine. (“Rearm, restore and reinstate, but end reset,” Aug. 29, Brian Mefford) Outrageously
blatant or not, its intent can only be explained as a pitch to
Ukrainian-American voters. It is laughable in Ukraine.
