Georgia Started the War to Help McCain

Is this just a bad parody or is HuffPo blogger Blake Fleetwood serious about this?

In classic “Wag The Dog” scenario there is a neat little war brewing between American and Russian proxies, and real Russian troops, in the Caucacus Mountains on the Russian border.
It couldn’t come at a better time for the Republicans.
McCain gets to act and talk tough against the Russians, while Obama is on vacation in Hawaii, issuing “can’t we all get along statements.”
It perfectly augments Republican campaign points: Obama is not ready. He is not tough, experienced enough to deal with a dangerous world.
McCain knows he can’t win the election on Iraq or Iran or the economy. Republicans need a real boogeyman —the Russian bear — armed with nuclear weapons — to really scare the bijous out of the American voters.
