Quote of the Week

December 7, 2008

From the AP:

The French magazine Le Nouvel Observateur reported last month that Putin told French President Nicolas Sarkozy that he would hang Georgian leader Mikhail Saakashvili by the testicles. The remark came during the August war between Russia and Georgia.

In a televised question-and-answer session with Russian citizens, a caller asked Putin whether he would like to see Saakashvili “hanged by one of his body parts.”

“Why by just one part?” Putin responded with a grin.

Responding to reports of Putin’s remarks in the Sarkozy meeting, Saakashvili fired back at the Russians last week by saying “they wouldn’t have enough rope.”
