John McCain: Keep an eye out for my op-ed in Pravda tomorrow, my friends
Keep an eye out for my op-ed in Pravda tomorrow on Russia, Putin and Syria

Vladimir Putin had his turn in the New York Times, and John McCain, in response, will have an article in Pravda. Well, Pravda.ru, which is a website and not affiliated with the well-known Russian newspaper:
McCain is writing an op-ed for a no-name website that happens to be named Pravda. The real Pravda won't publish him.

In spite of that, tweeters were still semi-facepalming:
You'll be right at home there. RT @SenJohnMcCain: Keep an eye out for my op-ed in Pravda tomorrow on Russia, Putin and Syria

@sunnyright If, while McCain was in the Hanoi Hilton, you had told him he'd be writing for Pravda later on …

The article will reportedly be posted at Pravda.ru at midnight:
John McCain has submitted his op-ed to Pravda. It is set to run at midnight tonight. It's everything you'd hope and expect

McCain&8217;s reaching way across the aisle with this one.
