A Russian Bridge Joke

Stalin is playing bridge with three other generals. Stalin bids 1 Club, the next general bids 1 Diamond, the next general 1 Heart, the next general 1 Spade; Stalin bids 1 Club, all pass.

(This joke was told to me by a bridge official of one of the former Soviet republics, but it's one of those jokes that you sometimes hear attributed to despised leaders of other countries as well.)
