Smile! You’re in Politics (Funny Pics, Part 4)

If you’re not having fun doing politics, then you chose the wrong kind of business

Politicians are often convinced that they need to take themselves seriously 100% of the time. However, such glum attitude often leads to sore miscalculations and bizarre ambitions like the Doomsday Machine (see Dr. Strangelove). The following pictures show that there is room for humour in the thick-and-thin of politics, up to the highest political level. The countries which these politicians represent should be proud of their leaders. Loosen up!

Putin, Medvedev & Co.

This is got to be Photoshop, otherwise it’s pretty frightening:

Good chemistry:

Here is a rarely-seen photo: during Ronald Reagan’s visit to Moscow in 1988, there is a man standing on the left, with cameras (pretending to be a tourist). This is Vladimir Putin, just doing his job at the time.
