It's not dead, it's just resting

The EU Constitution is beginning to rival the Monty Python parrot.
"No, no he's not dead, he's, he's restin'! Remarkable bird, the Norwegian Blue, idn'it, ay? Beautiful plumage!"
Czech PM Jiri Paroubek wants the ratification process delayed. EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso "called on member states to proceed with ratification and not preempt their summit meeting with 'unilateral decisions' before then".

What's with these people?
"The plumage don't enter into it. It's stone dead."
