(Discussing Republican convention with husband as we get ready for bed.)
Me: I get kind of suspect that Russia is really a threat. We were shaking in our boots for years with the Reagan administration's cold war. And it ended up being for nothing.
Husband: Yes, but have you heard about Georgia?
Me: Yeah! I heard something about that. Russia has arms pointed towards Georgia or something?
Husband: It's pretty serious.
Me: It's crazy! Why pick on Georgia?
Husband: America is going to be getting involved...
Me: (Interrupting) You know what surprised me about that whole thing? Why there aren't more pissed off Southerners. You know, I expected to see Bubba on the porch with a rifle telling the Russians he was going to whoop their asses. Overall, the US seems a little too calm about this.
Husband: (Pause) You think the Russians are getting ready to attack the state of Georgia don't you.
Me: Sara Palin had too much lipstick on.
