Putin Jabs Bush a Good One

From Susan G at Daily Kos on the joint news conference at the G8:

BUSH: I talked about my desire to promote institutional change in parts of the world, like Iraq, where there's a free press and free religion. And I told him that a lot of people in our country would hope that Russia will do the same thing. I fully understand, however, that there will be a Russian-style democracy.

PUTIN: We certainly would not want to have same kind of democracy as they have in Iraq, quite honestly.

BUSH: Just wait.

This from the man who sums up diplomacy with this gem: "Different words mean different things to different people." Someone please keep this man away from unscripted events. World peace might very well depend upon it.
