So, Sir Awesome, aka George W. Bush, regularly referred to in Czech papers as "The Most Powerful Man In The World", has been here in Praha, lobbying for an American missle defence system radar to be built here in the CZ. Needless to say, I wore black in his honor, and wished he wouldn't come here and besmirch my beautiful adopted city, but whatevs.
He left yesterday for the G8 summit in Germany where further sparring with Russian President Vladimir Putin -- who, by the way, is evil to the core, really -- is the prognosis. Bush's comments on the topic of Mr Putin's objections to the missile system are hilariously ill-conceived, what with the telling Mr Putin "Don't worry! We aren't scared of you!" Doesn't he know that Mr Putin WANTS EVERYONE TO BE SCARED OF MOTHER RUSSIA? DUDE: his country is bigger than your country, OKAY!? Plus: OIL.
All I'm saying is, I'm glad I don't have to hang out with those two losers.
Anyway, yesterday I had a lesson at a big insurance company whose offices are situated just across the street from the Prague Hilton, which, reportedly, was ENTIRELY taken by the American delegation, and occupied by some 800 or so people who travel with The Most Powerful Man In The World, and which looked like a Hilton hotel somewhere in some dreadful imaginary police state, surrounded as it was by hugemongous military vehicles, tanks, soldiers, and police in riot gear.
Yeah, so... Other than alerting you all to the appearance of photoshop masterpieces in Czech papers that feature Czech Prime Minister Mr. Topolanek hanging from Bush's fingers, puppet-style, on marionette strings, just as an afterthought, I got nothing more. Apparently, in between spouting off nonsense, Mr. Bush enjoyed some traditional Czech cuisine, though.
And, that's the update. Tune in next time.
