Klaus' Old Yeller Moment

This much is certain: Czech President Vaclav Klaus will never forget November.

In November 1989, he joined the Civic Forum to overthrew the communist government and eventually establish the Czech Republic. In November 2009, he signed the Lisbon treaty which, in his own words, "contains commitments that de facto mean giving up basic attributes of the sovereign state.”

Poor Klaus.

We haven't watched anything this sad since the final scene in Old Yeller. But, seeing that Klaus raised the Czech Republic from a puppy, it's only fitting that he’d be the one to take it out back with a shotgun.

Happy Anniversary Czechs (and Slovaks)!
