The “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” award goes to Russian president Vladimir Putin who proved conclusively that one can be both a country’s leader and puppet master (Putin’s Medvedev is now a recognized rival of Dunham’s Achmed), while keeping self in power. We look forward to Putin performing his puppeteering in Las Vegas someday.
The “Comical Ali” award goes to Muammar Gaddafi, the humble Libyan colonel who failed to get a promotion in over 30 years. Much like the famous Iraqi performer who claimed the Americans were being driven out of Iraq while American tanks could be seen right under his window, Muammar still claims the people of Libya are shooting at him out of love. Gloria Estefan was clearly wrong, it’s not the rhythm that’s gonna get you … it’s the love.
The “Schizophrenia” award for his entire activity goes to the former US president GW Bush, Jr, the one man who managed to claim he was promoting democracy while actively supporting dictatorship where it was available. We had no choice but to call the obvious diagnostic.
The “Bill Clinton” award goes to Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. However, in the light of Mr Berlusconi’s achievements this award will be called from now on the “Silvio Berlusconi” award. After all, it’s all about the math: Berlusconi had dozens of interns (versus Clinton’s one) and he didn’t need to use an extra cigar.
The “Gypsy Kings” award is currently shared between Romanian president Traian Basescu and French president Nicolas Sarkozy for their proactive promotion of the gypsy community. Not to mention they act like gypsies, talk like gypsies and think like gypsies … so we’re guessing that in the end they’re simply jealous that they can’t seem to fit in the gypsy community no matter how hard they try to copy their behavior. After all, even the gypsies have standards.
The “Sex-ed for all” award goes to the Vatican, for its proactive and innovative approach to sexual education. The involvement of catholic priests and their hands-on approach to demonstrating sex to young boys and their dedication to this new mission is admirable.
Finally, the “Liberty, equality, fraternity” award goes to the joint leaders of Romanian’s top three political parties (PDL, PSD, PNL). After years of bickering they have finally joined hands to protect corruption and members of the communist services.
