The Putin wit?

Perhaps Russian Top Cat Vladimir Putin has a dry wit that we seldom see over here. When asked by the New York Times who runs the country when he and President Dmitri Medvedev are both asleep, he replied:

“We take turns sleeping.”

h/p to Taegan Goddard who used the quip as his “Political Quote of the Day.

    Not exactly fall-on-the-floor laugh material, but yes, especially if he managed to deliver the line with a straight face, I’d say that qualifies as near-desert-quality “wit.” Fortunately, it’s not confined to particular geographic areas, political persuasions, neighborhoods, or even families.
