Fwd: Wonderful joke abt Americans...Very good  

While visiting India , George Bush is invited to tea with
 
Indian President Abdul Kalam.
 
He asks Kalam what his leadership philosophy is. He says that,
 
it is to surround himself with intelligent people.
 
Bush asks how he knows if they're intelligent.
 
"I do so by asking them the right questions," says Kalam."Allow
 
me to demonstrate. "
 
Bush watches as Kalam phones Manmohan Singh and says, "Mr.
 
Prime Minister, please answer this question: your mother has a
child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your
 
brother or sister. Who is it?"
 
Manmohan immediately responds, "It's me, Sir !"
 
"Correct. Thank you and good-bye, sir," says Kalam. He hangs up
and says, "Did you get that, Mr. Bush?"
 
 
Bush nods: "Yes Mr. President. Thanks a lot. I'll definitely be
 
using that!"
 
Bush, upon returning to Washington, decides he'd better put the
Condoleeza Rice to the test. Bush summons her to the White
House and says, "Condoleeza, I wonder if you can answer a
 
question for me."
 
"Why, of course, sir. What's on your mind?"
 
Bush poses the question: "Uhh, your mother has a child, and
your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or
 
your sister. Who is it?"
 
Rice was puzzled and finally asks, "Can I think about it and
 
get back to you?" Bush agrees, and Rice leaves. Rice
 
immediately calls a meeting of senior senators, and they puzzle
 
over the question for several hours, but nobody can come up
 
with an answer. Finally, in desperation, Rice calls Colin
 
Powell and explains the problem.
 
"Mr. Powell, your mother has a child, and your father has a
 
child, and this child is not your brother or your sister. Who
 
is it?"
 
Powell answers immediately, "It's me, of course."
 
Much relieved, Rice rushes back to the White House, finds
George Bush, and exclaims, "I know the answer, sir! I know who
 
it is! It's our Colin Powell!"
 
And Bush replies in disgust, "Wrong, its Manmohan Singh!"
