Palin vs. Putin

Quiz Image

Every once in a while, I'll catch a headline out of the corner of my eye and do a double-take. You see, Sarah Palin and Vladimir Putin have last names that look very similar, especially in some fonts.

After doing some research, I found that their rhetoric is similar, too. Can you determine which of the following quotes was uttered by which politician?

  1. History proves that all dictatorships, all authoritarian forms of government are transient. Only democratic systems are not transient. Whatever the shortcomings, mankind has not devised anything superior.
  2. (On the U.S. Presidential Election) I think the American people should express their preferences, and we'll accept their choice.
  3. No references to the need to fight terror can be an argument for restricting human rights.
  4. I never really set out to be involved in public affairs, much less to run for this office.
  5. Nobody and nothing will stop us on the road to strengthening democracy and ensuring human rights and freedoms.
  6. Politics isn't just a game of clashing parties and competing interests.
  7. We discussed this very important issue (the U.S. Presidential election) yesterday over a beer.
  8. No one expects us to agree on everything. But we are expected to govern with integrity, good will, clear convictions, and a servant's heart.
  9. Terrorism has once again shown it is prepared deliberately to stop at nothing in creating human victims. An end must be put to this. As never before, it is vital to unite forces of the entire world community against terror.
  10. We shall fight against them (terrorists), throw them in prisons and destroy them.
  11. I understand that economic change is difficult. This is especially true in our rural communities, where the lack of roads and other infrastructure present such challenges to economic development. We must learn from our mistakes and build on our successes to create sustainable economies so that our rural communities and villages can thrive.
  12. If the current tendency prevails, the survival of the nation will be under threat.
  13. Any attention to them (terrorists) on the part of the media, any double-standard interpretation of their motives and results of their activity means nothing but a political and administrative support of terrorist acts.
