Exceptional Assholes

It's bad enough that U.S. politicians use the tragic shootings at the Washington Navy Yard for political purposes while the bodies are still warm.
Just hours after the deadly shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, gun control advocates tried to reignite the national debate over gun laws that had only just subsided.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat and a longtime gun control advocate, denounced “the litany of massacres” over the past few years and asked rhetorically, “When will enough be enough?”

President Obama was one of the first to link Monday’s incident to the larger issue of gun violence and the legislative effort to curb it...
But then some know-nothing russkie, no doubt emboldened by Putin's punking of obama, had to add his two cents worth.

Russian official mocks Navy Yard shooting
A Russian official blasted “American exceptionalism” in a tweet Monday morning, saying the deadly shooting at Washington’s Navy Yard confirms the worst about the U.S.

“A new shootout at Navy headquarters in Washington — a lone gunman and 7 corpses. Nobody’s even surprised anymore,” tweeted Alexey Pushkov, a member of the Russian parliamentary foreign affairs committee.

“A clear confirmation of American exceptionalism,” he added, according to multiple translations of the original Russian tweet.
Well, as far as I'm concerned, American Exceptionalism is alive and well. Just ask yourself where you would rather live - The good ol' U.S. of A. or Putin's frozen wasteland of a mob-ruled country overseen by a former KGB thug.

And a little closer to home, just ask yourself where you would rather live - Kalifornia, Washington D.C., or Texas.

I've already made my choice...
