Fancy that! Turns out exceptionalism’s pretty cool when Putin does it [pics]

In his New York Times op-ed, Russian President Vladimir Putin cautioned that “it is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation.” But as blogger Mary Chastain illustrates, maybe next time Putin stares lovingly at himself in a mirror, he should take a harder look:

Seems like only yesterday when Fats Putin found his threel on Bloobeddy Heel:

Renaissance. Man.

Exceptionally studly … and hypocritical.

Snort.

    Putin, the most interesting man… in his own mind.

    If I had a strong President, he’d look like Putin.

    Putin lets loose a smelly one, yet gets Obama to believe that he farted. Well played Vlad.

    If he weren’t a dictator of the world’s largest land country, he’d make the perfect James Bond!

    In all honesty, Putin seems like a pretty awesome man. (Ok, now everyone attack me, go ahead)

    • WhoMeToo

      Except for the “dictator”, “poisoning your enemies” & “Stalin Worship” stuff…… O.O

    • Andy from Beaverton

      There is only two things Obama does better than Putin, manipulate the press and play basketball.

      • aztectrumpet

        I think Putin could make more than 2 out of 32 shots.

      • nickdqwk

        Not sure about the basketball, Putin is exceptional, Obama is ExceptioaLOL.

    • Glorious_Cause

      He’s a clown and a dictator.

    But, but … obama wears mom jeans and rides a girls’ bike and stuff …

    President Putin looks like a skilled professional no matter what he is doing – obama always looks like what he is – a worthless putz.

    Seeing Putin the Dentist reminds me of that scene from Marathon Man

    Putin once taught a German Shepherd to bark in Russian. His Zil limo is more eco-friendly than a Prius because it runs on his own urine. Even his enemys list him as their emergency contact. He is the world’s most exceptional man.

      Chuck Norris is honored to know him.

    Kinda reminds me of the pictures Dear Leader puts out, except Putin’s pictures make him look cool, while Obama’s make him look like he’s trying too hard.

      I bet Putin doesn’t wear a bike helmet.

    …and when he drinks beer, he drinks Dos Equis.

      He doesn’t always drink Alcohol, but when he does, he drinks Vodka.

    Oh my gosh that is hilarious!

    Exceptional at *almost* everything. I noticed there were no pictures of Vlad, the Exceptional Romantic. Where are the candle lit shots of Vladi with wine, roses, soft music, and one or more beautiful women? Or does being a Renaissance Man leave no time for the ladies?

    And seriously, I laughed my @ss off at this thread.

  • http://mpj.co WhoDat

    Reminds me a little too much of those Chuck Norris jokes.

  • Doc Farmer

    Wait, where’s the cover photo of him riding the damn shark?

    Anyway, you know that’s fake! The shark’s got no lasers or piranha-cannons…

  • Danny Wheeler

    YES!

  • walterc

    Actually Vlad, if we really thought we were exceptional, we wouldn’t let the world see a pic of our President throwing a baseball or riding a bike. As the face of America, he’s an embarrassment.

  • brewerandpatriot

    And here our leader prances around with his little pu$$y dog shooting skeet with bad form.

  • Texan357

    Thing is – not that I can be bothered to check – probably most of these are real, non-‘shopped photos.

  • LeighLeigh

    This was so amazeballs that I am laughing myself silly….the last comment is priceless…

  • Judy Taylor

    Okay… has Putin seen these? Does he know he’s “exceptional”? Does Putin know what exceptional means? Methinks that his op-ed was written by Obama who is decidedly NOT exceptional and also doesn’t know what it means. Yeah…that’s it.

  • AlmaAlma

    He is all things to all people.
    Isn’t that what Big Govt says?
    You didn’t build that, you aren’t exceptional, YOU NEEED ME!!!!

  • Jeremy

    so hilarious. great pics.

  • Arkuy The Great

    A FB buddy of mine said the thumbnail pic of Putin on the horse made him look like a centaur.

  • SpiffyMclure

    The most hilarious thing I’ve read in weeks. @mchastain81 wins the internet!

  • jay7799

    After all that I think I have a new hero, so the point kind of back fired on me.

  • Maxx

    And we have a guy in mom jeans riding a Huffy.

  • Taxpayer1234

    LOL Mary! You rock!

  • AlmaAlma

    Anyone remember this?

    Leon Panetta tells Congress his authority comes from the United Nations

    Well, at least Vlad’s photos look plausible unlike Obama’s completely staged shots. I’m thinking of the little boy with the big shotgun joke or him surrounded by dozens of “doctors” in white lab coats to promote ObamaCare. Phony!

  • USPatriot

    We have a Sissy for a President, BUT this guy is a Russian and OUR enemy. Don’t forget it folks.

    Why isn’t this guy our president?
