Quicker than you can say “Breaking News from Heiligendamm, Germany,” Russian President Vladimir Putin and our President George (“I call him Vladimir”) Bush have solved the international missile shield crisis that Putin whipped up for the G8 meeting.
Bono, who knows something about fame, diagnosed a case of Reverse Attention Deficit Disorder, a disease that is plaguing the celebrity world. Putin’s condition was cured by a weekend of headlines and CNN face time.
"People love a cockfight, you know,” Bono explained. “It's like, this is just a complete distraction."
Not for Putin, who was getting lost in the Middle East shuffle and Bush, who hasn’t been able to smile for the cameras in a long time.
