What would happen if the U.S. and Russia got along?

Russia! Russia! Russia!

Pronounce it in The Brady Bunch vernacular: “Marsha! Marsha! Marsha!”

With the emerging probe into the alleged Russian meddling in our 2016 presidential election, it may prove to be nothing but a dry hole. But the Pavlovian liberals and mass media are determined to convince us that it’s true before the investigation has even started. So just for kicks, let’s just assume Russia’s involvement turns out to be true.

So what? All the WikiLeaks’ hacking did was reveal the truth about what Democrat mavens Hillary Clinton, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Donna Brazile were doing behind the scenes to manipulate their party into defeating Bernie Sanders’ candidacy for the Democrat nomination.

Somehow it has gotten lost on the mass media and Democratic leaders that it was the truth that defeated Hillary Clinton, not Russian hacking. If it turns out that Russia was involved, we should be thanking the Russians for performing a great service in exposing an inherent truth about Hillary that our press refused to do.

As for over 70 years of international tension between the USA and Russia, what would happen if peace actually broke out between us? What a concept!
