Quotation of the Day

From Mirek Topolanek, a Czech who is president of the European Union, on U.S. economic recovery plans, as reported by the Irish Times:

"All of these steps, their combination and their permanency, is a way to hell. We need to read the history books and read with it the lessons of history.”

The Europeans didn't take his "undiplomatic" remarks very well, but as I recall, the Czechs didn't find socialism to be such a good thing. But, of course, we Americans can ignore history and get away with it. Right?
