Mexico's civilized exchange of power

La muchedumbre? No, it's Mexico's Congressional leaders:

Lawmakers wrestled, slapped each other and tumbled across the floor of Mexico's Congress after opposition legislators threatened to block the inauguration of the incoming president, whom they accuse of stealing the election.

By late Tuesday, the brawl had turned into a tense standoff between congressmen of President-elect Felipe Calderon's conservative party _ who want him to take the oath of office in Congress _ and opposition leftists who have vowed to block the swearing-in ceremony.
And our elites want to merge the North American continent into one united bloc. We had surpassed this sort of nonsense by the time Jefferson took office in early 1801. Wow.

We're told that family values don't stop at the border. We're led to believe that what Mexico lacks in economic development (being only one-fourth as wealthy as the US despite sharing, as an underdeveloped country, the longest border in the world with an industrialized nation plus taking $20 billion_plus in remittances) Mexico makes up in moral strength.

This squabbling isn't in itself that meaningful, but it is indicative of that atrocious lie.

It's $25 billion in remittances this year.
