Putin Channels Canadian comic Jim Carrey in "Dumb and Dumber" to give context to Russian US Embassy Imbroglio

Vladimir Putin says it's difficult to
conduct International Diplomacy with people
who confuse Austria and Australia

Who says Vladimi Putin doesn't have a sense of humour?  Just yesterday he managed to contextualize the American diplomatic "style" perfectly while complaining how difficult it was to conduct international diplomacy with individuals who confuse "Austria" with "Australia".  I wondered what the source of this "bon mot" was.  After a bit of Googling, low and behold I found out that Putin was channeling a Canadian (actor Jim Carrey) imitating an American in the classic comedy "Dumb and Dumber".

Considering the straight face with which Putin delivered his "zinger"...when he does finally retire, he can always go on the Yuk Yuk nightclub comedy circuit.  Hopefully, his chess master ability to seize victory from the jaws of one threatened USrael Nuclear Armageddon after another will make such a career change possible...i.e., there will still be a planet to exchange jokes on.

Always enjoy your rant Greencrow .Of course I totally agree with what you rant about because it is not so much a rant as it is the truth of the matter on geopolitics .
Some of us know and recognize true leadership when we see it .
