A swingin' Big Band rap song from 1943 about Stalin whuppin' on Hitler based on a speech by Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Yes, it's real. And the Allies did burn up a helluva lotta Russians winnin' that war. But the next time someone tells you this is the pinkest Administration in U.S. history, maybe you better start laughin'. (Even if they did red up the White House somethin' awful yesterday.) Maybe you better buy a nice Commie hat -- or buy a half-dozen for the whole collective at anniversary sale prices.
(And that reminds me: the commie-watching Ushanka blog has turned six. Felicitations, tovarich!)
