Russia and the U.S. could unite for one week, go into Syria, remove the chemicals, and let them continue fighting.—

Oh my. As Twitchy reported, David Axelrod credited Obama’s “credible,” (yet unbelievably small) threat for forcing Bashar al-Assad to consider giving up his chemical weapons to Vladimir Putin.

Dave Rubin attempts to steal Brooks’ thunder:
