A joke from Russia

I heard it on the radio this morning told by the Russian correspondent for Spanish National Radio.

Bush calls up Putin and says: "I'm tired of hanging chads and butterfly ballots and all that. I want to win the next election like you do."

Putin replies: "No problem. I'll send over a guy and he'll take care of it for you."

But on election night, Bush calls up Putin again. "Your guy didn't work out here at all! United Russia just won."
