We're on a Highway to Hell


So sayeth Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek, who recently began his stint as a caretaker Prime Minister. According to the Washington Post, Mr. Topolanek decided to ignore diplomatic niceties and blast Obama and Washington for the recent bail outs. Said Topolanek:

All of these steps, these combinations and permanency, is the road to hell. The United States did not take the right path.

Topolanek's speech to the European Parliament angered some legislators, who rebuked him for presuming that all members of the European Union agreed with his harsh criticism of Washington, or the way he delivered it. I for one think it's pretty great.

Seriously, what would Europe be like without the Czechs?

Topolanek is awesome.

I hope the Czech EU presidency lasts forever.

Maybe he was referring to the narrow peninsula on the Baltic...
