Comrade Putin

Imagine our relief when we heard Commie-in-Chief Vladimir Putin has no use for our great state. During his annual marathon question-and-answer session, Putin – who actually was wearing a shirt  – was asked by a Russian woman if Alaska would be his next conquest in the wake of his Crimea adventure and Ukrainian meddling. “What […]
