When Your Sole Function in Life is to Serve as a Bad Example to Others

Russian Prime Minister Putin was determined to conquer Georgia and hang its president, Mikhail Saakashvili:
“I am going to hang Saakashvili by the balls,” Mr Putin declared.

Mr Sarkozy thought he had misheard. “Hang him?” — he asked. “Why not?” Mr Putin replied. “The Americans hanged Saddam Hussein.”

Mr Sarkozy, using the familiar tu, tried to reason with him: “Yes but do you want to end up like [President] Bush?” Mr Putin was briefly lost for words, then said: “Ah — you have scored a point there.”
George W. Bush was, therefore, instrumental in keeping Georgia from being conquered by the Russian Army. But probably in not the way that he had in mind.

Is this real? If so, it is the funniest thing I have ever seen. If not...well, it's still a decent joke, but only decent.

I hope good diplomacy and policy will replace the bad example soon.
