How does a camo-bedecked dood waltz up to the President of the Czech Republic – who’s dedicating a new bridge – and manage to get close enough to stick a pistol in his side and pull the trigger? That’s what plenty of churlish Czechs are probably asking today after an unidentified man did just that…with an airsoft gun. “‘I was standing next to the president when a man applied a pistol to his side and squeezed the trigger several times. I could hear a few clicks. In the first moment I did not know at all what was happening,’ Chrastava Mayor Michael Canov told CTK.” The real question is why, instead of being slid into a police cruiser, EMTs weren’t scooping up a desanguinating pile of protoplasm. As a boston.com article dryly put it, “It is not clear why the president’s bodyguards did not intervene in time.” No, no it’s not.
