This is what happens when you elect someone because he looks cool standing next to Jay-Z. Putin is cool mainly in the sense that Yakutsk in February is. In American pop-culture terms, he is a faintly ridiculous figure, with his penchant for homoerotic shirtlessness, his nipples entering the room like an advance security team; the celebrities he attracts are like some rerun channel way up the end of the dial: Goldie Hawn was in the crowd when Putin, for no apparent reason, sang “I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill,” which Goldie seemed to enjoy. In reality, Putin finds his thrill by grabbing Obama’s blueberries and squeezing hard. Cold beats cool.

— Mark Steyn on “American Ineffectualism — Every American ally is cringing with embarrassment at the amateurishness of the last month.”

Do I even need to add the obligatory “read the whole thing”?

Remember that instead of writing the whole phrase "read the whole thing", you can shorten it by just using the letters M-A-R-K-S-T-E-Y-N.
