Oh, Snap!

Well, no one ever claimed that Mirek Topolánek, the (quasi) Prime Minister of the Czech Republic, was soft spoken (particularly aggressive photographers), so we aren't particularly surprised to hear him describe the stimulus plans of the United States as "the road to hell." Perhaps he was just cranky (he was been shown the door by the Czech Parliament just yesterday and this whole missile shield thing is enough to annoy the most stoic Eastern European statesman) or he was just prepping the waters for Obama's up coming visit to Prague. Whatever the case, you can bet Obama and Mirek will be studiously ignoring each other for some time to come, and, really, Mirek has nothing on Maxine Waters anyhow.
