Speaker John Boehner invited Pope Francis to address Congress in June. The pope got rid of his limousine, he turned down living in his palace for a one-bedroom apartment and he lives a life of celibacy. A member of the Kennedy family will be on hand to deliver the rebuttal.
President Obama met with Ukraine’s leader Thursday and vowed serious action if Russia annexes Crimea. The president of Russia said he won’t act unless the Crimean parliament passes the bill. Now it’s official, Obama’s getting it from everybody for ruling by executive order.
Vladimir Putin rejected U.S. peace ideas and massed troops on Ukraine’s border Friday as he prepared to seize Crimea. It’s part of his master plan. Vladimir Putin wants the Nobel Peace Prize, but he believes you have got to act like you don’t want something in order to get it.
President Obama sent two boxes of White House brewed beer to Canada’s prime minister to pay off an Olympics bet. The boxes arrived marked Honey Porter and Honey Blonde. The Canadians read the labels and just assumed the Clintons were already back in the White House.
President Obama told a young audience if they can’t afford Obamacare they can cut off cable TV or cell phone service to pay for it. Reaction was volcanic. Sasha and Malia just called that New Jersey teenager who sued her parents to see if she wants to make it a class-action suit.

Republicans on Capitol Hill went on TV Tuesday and called Vladimir Putin’s expansion policy something no one’s seen since Adolf Hitler. For goodness sake, they know he is nothing like Hitler. He only annexed the Crimea, it’s not like he made us buy health insurance.

The standoff in Ukraine keeps getting worse. But a new poll shows Vladimir Putin’s approval rating has actually gone up 10 percent since he sent troops into Crimea. When he heard that, Obama just shrugged and sent troops to invade Canada.
