No Russia for you, pushy senator!

Coats lists many opportunities lost through travel ban

Friday, March 21, 2014 - 12:27 pm

Indiana Sen. Dan Coats, stung by being banned from entering Russia in retaliation for U.S. sanctions, took inspiration from Indiana native David Letterman. Coats posted a list on Twitter of his Top 10 things he won't be able to do because of the travel ban:

10. I won't be able to complete my granddaughter's Russian doll collection.

9. I won't be able to compare the Bolshoi Opera House with the Palladium in Carmel.

8. I'll never learn the Russian name for our dog Hoosier.

7. I won't be able to ski on the slushy slopes of Sochi.

6. I won't be able to buy Marsha a Russian mink coat for Christmas.

5. I won't be able to counsel Duma members on how to say no to a President.

4. I'll have to cancel my tennis match with Maria Sharapova.

3. I won't be able to compare Russiaville, IN with Russia.

2. I won't be able to see if borscht really does taste just like pork tenderloin.

1. Our summer vacation in Siberia is a no go.
