Check out the photo on the current front page:

Many of the wingnuts have loved Putin for a long time, particularly Drudge and the Freepers, who giggle over idiotic comparisons with Obama (Putin fishes shirtless: Obama bikes in mom jeans!) as if they're pre-teen One Direction fans sneering at Beliebers. See also Pat Buchanan defending Putin on gay-bashing and Pussy Riot, and this right-wing columnist ("Is Putin the Russian Reagan?"). Yeah, he's their dreamboat.


UPDATE: Eric Boehlert of Media Matters has more on this phenomenon.

I'm surprised our Reich-Wingers didn't fake a long-form birth certificate that said that Vlad was born in a Red State, so he could run for President against Obama last year.

Oh well, there's still time before 2016.

From the file marked "duh."

Boehlert's piece reminds me of Lakoff's use of framing...specifically, how the conservative mindset is governed by adherence to a 'Strict Father' moral model.

They're all clost queers. And children-fuckers.

Who all bow down to the same damned dog.

No fear.
