    This is why Ron Fournier and Ezra Klein are so pissed off about the current WHCD…it’s no longer an exclusive territory.

    Note that, among others, this was RT’d by US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoff Pyatt …

    …. so there’s no doubt as to its validity.

    • May 3, 2014 at 7:55 pm

      I guess Ambassador Pyatt wanted to be sure because he also RT’d two other tweets with exactly the same message, here’s one of them ….

      He really knows how to use ‘social media’ (or, at least someone on his team does) because, as noted before, his TL is not merely filled with ‘official’ statements.

          Amen, meta, donna dem, and anniebella. So very the best. What a great job we all did to make this happen with them. I am so full when I see them together just keep moving on, moving on. What a great First Couple we have to enjoy and be so proud of in our history of Presidents and First Ladies.

    Google translation:

    “Soldiers of the National Guard of Ukraine managed to repulse the assault on the draft board number 3035 in Lugansk pro-Russian armed men in camouflage, said Secretary of the National Security and Defense Andrew Parubiy, reports the Telegraph.”

    At least one soldier was shot; no word on pro-russian (aka RUSSIAN) casualties.

    Still too many men; the place looks like a sea of black and white (the tuxes; unfortunately not the people).

    Good evening all you beautiful people. Long time, no post. I still visit almost daily but am either sneaking a peak at work, where I can’t post, or it’s for a quick minute on my way out the door in the morning, or so late at night that I fall asleep before catching up.

    I’m home for my favorite comedy show of the year with the master entertainer and all around great guy, President Obama, and there’s no other company I’d rather keep for the occasion.

    I’m out of the shadows to give a big shout out on the 25mil milestone. No other news outlet comes close at providing info, insight, humor and facts the way you all do here at TOD. I know I’ve sent many here and they all have thanked me for it. The last person was a waitress at a Philippino restaurant who was so excited to see pictures of the President in her country. She had no idea he was even out of the country. She took this website address and said she couldn’t wait to visit when she got home.

    So again a big congrats to a wonderful ‘newsblog’ community. And an especially big thanks to Chips for not shutting the doors, but allowing others to help her carry us through.

    Let the fun begin! (It’s been so long I hope I remembered my login credentials)

      Thanks for nothing, zizi. Now I need somebody to throw another bucket of cold water on me That’s three times in less than five hours. Looks like Yardarm is gonna have to stock a locker full of mats just for me.
