  2. Sadly they’re not holding Republican conventions in Tirana anymore.

    Although they should, since as you see he got the rock treatment. That’s what happens when you’ve been held prisoner under Communism for so long, and this guy’s country represents freedoms (including buying nice Ironman watches).
