Coming Undone

Ah, it'll take a little time
Might take a little crime
To come undone
--Duran Duran

Like its progressive electorate in general, the Obama administration appears to be coming undone on the way out the door. After publicly berating Israel over its settlement policy and unilaterally claiming 1.6 million acres of western United States land as 'national monuments, the administration sanctioned Russia for allegedly interfering with the US presidential election without producing a shred of specific evidence to support those allegations.

This opened the door for Russian President Vladimir Putin to, as he has done several times during President Obama's tenure, look like the adult in the room by publicly declining to retaliate against Obama's sanctions and even inviting US citizens to partake in holiday ceremonies at the Kremlin.

The juvenile behavior has some DNC operatives distancing themselves from an administration whose 'legacy' is dwindling by the day. Some of the administration's mainstream media lackeys also seem disturbed by the folly.

'Out with the old and in with the new' seems particularly appropriate on this day.
