Estonia First in Euro Race

European Commissioner Joaquin Almunia told Austria's Profil magazine that it's realistic only one member state could adopt the euro in 2011. "And it's Estonia," the commissioner said. "The other Baltic states are completely backwards, all full of knuckle-dragging politicians and mouth-breathing electorates." Almunia, who is said to have an Estonian grandfather, noted that he also praised Estonia to the World Bank.
