"Putin fanboy Tucker Carlson finally got to meet his hero. According to right-wingers, this was the interview that was going to set the world on fire. "Break the Internet" is what I saw in post after post from MAGA. The greatest, most insightful interviewer in modern history was going to sit down in a penetrating and revealing tête-à-tête that was going to change the world. Free-thinking people all over the globe, who may have been skeptical before about the justness of Putin's cause in Ukraine, were finally going to see the light thanks to Tucker's ability to reveal the truth from the man himself.

But, oh. It was
not to be. Instead, it was a magnificent, splendid, delicious disaster.

Autocrats, like Putin, smell and sense weakness, insecurity and fear a mile away. Putin treated Tucker the same way he treats Spanky Trump for the same reasons - he sees both as deeply insecure phonies who crave acceptance and adoration. Easy marks. Easy to exploit. He also knows that, while both act tough in public settings in front of TV cameras, both Tucker and Spanky hate face-to-face confrontations because at heart they are cowards. Putin sees that quite clearly, and goes in for the kill every time. Putin treats both with a sneering contempt - with that look in his eye that says, 'I don't respect you, I own you, and you don't even cost me much in return. You thought I was your friend, but I am your master."

Nobody got more election help from Russia than Ted Kennedy did 40 years ago.

Remember when Ted Kennedy asked the Soviets for help defeating Reagan?

The Democrats are desperately diverting attention away from their rigging the nomination fight by charging that Russia is interfering in our election. But there was a time when going to Moscow to help defeat the other party didn’t seem to disturb Democrats. In fact, with the help of friendly media, the entire incident has been sent to the memory hole. Once upon a time it was revealed, but nobody outside of the conservative ghetto remembers.

But Betsy Newmark of Betsy’s Page remembers: (hat tip: Instapundit):

As the Democrats struggle to turn the story of the DNC hacks into an attack on Trump by arguing that the Russians are behind the hack and that Putin is trying to help Trump get elected, let's remember when a prominent Democrat actually went to the Soviets for help in defeating Reagan. In 1984 Ted Kennedy approached the Soviets who were then led by the former KGB head, Yuri Andropov, and tried to negotiate help in opposing Reagan. We found out about Kennedy's efforts when Yeltsin opened up the Soviet archives in 1991. Sean Davis links to the story as reported in Forbes.

Picking his way through the Soviet archives that Boris Yeltsin had just thrown open, in 1991 Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times, came across an arresting memorandum. Composed in 1983 by Victor Chebrikov, the top man at the KGB, the memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy.

“On 9-10 May of this year,” the May 14 memorandum explained, “Sen. Edward Kennedy’s close friend and trusted confidant [John] Tunney was in Moscow.” (Tunney was Kennedy’s law school roommate and a former Democratic senator from California.) “The senator charged Tunney to convey the following message, through confidential contacts, to the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Y. Andropov.”

Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. “The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” the memorandum stated. “These issues, according to the senator, will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign.

Gee that's relevant.
