Russians Turn Down McCain

You will recall that John McCain has been trying to get the Cold War going again as part of his ill-fated and hapless campaign for the US Presidency. Now this:

The Russian mission to the UN in New York says it has turned down a request from John McCain to help fund his presidential campaign.

Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin and others received standard mail-outs asking them to help “stop the Democrats from seizing control of Washington”.

Spokesmen for the McCain campaign and the mission accepted the letters were “a computer error”.

Russians, especially the ones in the embassy, can be really funny when given the chance.

The BBC has the whole story.

    Well, the Russians may have turned down McCain. Our troops seem to like him though.

    Who cares about the Russians, when you have the support of Al-Qaeda?
