I’m not sure why it took so damn long, but at least Barack Obama finally has realized that Vladimir Putin will find more ways to hose you than a Manhattan con artist.
In a rare diplomatic rebuke, Obama today canceled his Moscow summit with Putin, who reportedly stopped flexing his man boobs and burst into tears of regret upon hearing the news.
The Obama administration has been as hot as a waffle iron over Russia’s harboring of NSA leaker Edward Snowden and Moscow’s stubbornness on other key issues such as missile defense, human rights and Putin’s continuing support of Syrian blood monster Bashar al-Assad.
The final straw evidently came when Putin offered asylum to A-Rod and Justin Bieber.
Obama still will attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia and thus burn through more tax dollars than Leonard Tose once did Atlantic City gaming chips, but a top White House official said the president has no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.
Take that, Vladimir, and please refrain from flashing the middle finger from Russia with love. Sarah Palin might be watching from her Alaskan backyard.
