Mr Katsav is facing allegations that he raped members of his staff. He strongly denies the claims.
A Kremlin spokesman admitted Mr Putin made a joke, but said it was not meant to be overheard.”
-BBC News, October 20, 2006

“Wow.. Just. Wow. Putin was joking about rape and how ‘manly’ it is. Geez. How can this not be a big scandal? How can people still respect him? Who could still like the guy after this?”

“I looked into his eyes and took the measure of his soul,”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, upon his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin

I brought him [Vladimir Putin] to my ranch because, as the good people in this part of the world know, that you only usually invite your friends into your house.
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, Nov. 15, 2001

“I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy. We had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul; a man deeply committed to his country and the best interests of his country ... I wouldn't have invited him to my ranch if I didn't trust him.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, on Vladamir Putin, June 16, 2001

“Oh who am I kidding? We all know that these Quotes all pre-date Putin’s little rape ‘joke’. Of course Fearless Leader should work a little more on his ‘soul-seeing’ super powers, since I am pretty sure that people who joke favorably about rape should the souls dark enough for our psychic President to notice. Still, maybe Fearless Leader was blinded by other things.”

“Russian President Vladimir Putin says terrorist attacks in Iraq are aimed at preventing the re-election of U.S. President George W. Bush and that a Bush defeat ‘could lead to the spread of terrorism to other parts of the world.’"
-CNN, October 18, 2004

“See? Putin was, early on at least, a definite Bush-man, and we all know that ass-kissing is like kryptonite to Fearless Leader. When he gets around it all of his super soul-searching and Decider powers go away (see: Rumsfeld, Donald). Still, nothing lasts forever.”

“Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a blistering attack on the United States, accusing it of running a ‘dictatorship’ over global affairs and able only to worsen humanity's problems.

‘Dictatorship, the more so dictatorship in international affairs, has never solved and could not have solved such problems in the history of mankind,’ Putin said.
‘Only a balanced democratic system of international law,’ could help ease those problems, he said.
‘Even when dictatorship is beautifully gift-wrapped in pseudo-democratic phraseology it has never been capable of resolving such systemic problems. On the contrary, it can only make them worse,’ Putin said.”
-AFP, December 4, 2004

“Less than two months after making sure to endorse Dubya, Putin turned around and said that the United States was running a dictatorship over global affairs. It’s like he didn’t love Fearless Leader anymore. I’m sure that Fearless Leader and Putin will kiss and make up though. They still have a lot in common: nuclear bombs and common goals.”

“President Vladimir Putin outlined plans Monday to ‘radically’ change the Russian political system in a way that would increase his own power, portraying the moves as a means of combating terrorism in the aftermath of this month's deadly school seizure.
Putin's plan would eliminate the popular election of governors and individual members of parliament. The president would appoint governors, subject to the confirmation of regional legislatures. All members of the lower house of parliament, known as the State Duma, would be drawn from party lists rather than elected in individual districts.”
-Washington Post, September 13, 2004

“But I also made it clear to [Vladimir Putin] that it's important to think beyond the old days of when we had the concept that if we blew each other up, the world would be safe.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, May 1, 2001

“So never fear True Believers.. When trouble is brewing and a brutal, repressive, civil-rights destroying solution is needed, the signal will go out from the White House and the Dictatorship Duo will leap into action once again..”

“Get me Pootie-Poot on the phone!”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, requesting a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, as reported in Time magazine, May 27, 2002
