SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – OVERNIGHT: 

ONE HEARTBEAT AWAY – OVERNIGHT:  Vice President and Grand Admiral Kamala Harris has done it again.  I personally believe that hearing aids and electro-shock therapy may be required to salvage her.  It's gotten that bad.  Exhibit 435, from Fox:  Vice President Kamala Harris was dragged by critics on Tuesday for an eyebrow-raising response during a radio interview, where she was asked to explain the Ukraine crisis to listeners.  Harris joined the "The Morning Hustle" to discuss the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, President Biden's nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the Supreme Court, and Biden's upcoming State of the Union address.  Asked at one point to explain the crisis overseas in "layman's terms" for concerned listeners, Harris responded slowly, "Ukraine is a country in Europe. It exists next to another country called Russia. Russia is a bigger country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine, so basically that’s wrong."  Critics pounced on Harris for her elementary explanation of a war that has already claimed thousands of casualties, with some questioning her understanding of the conflict and others mocking her curious choice of words.  "OH… MY… GOD," GOP strategist Greg Price tweeted alongside a clip of the exchange.  She treated the audience members like children, and got away with it.  Can you imagine her as president?  And yet, look at Biden's physical condition.  We're in trouble.
