It looks like Lady M may have to reprise her Mexico trip as Czarina Diplomacia.
Only this time the emphasis won’t be so much on their kids Fat Behinds. This time, it’s strictly political. Apparently our last campaign to impress and placate the citizens didn’t work out the way we had hoped. So, there’s more work to be done.
Unfortunately, the latest reports indicate that lawlessness still abounds: the drug cartels are still in control. Murders are still occurring nightly, kidnappings are still commonplace, and rapes and other crimes are up 10-fold. And to make things worse, their cops feel as though their hands are tied.
Also, on the non-crime front, their schools are so overburdened that kids don’t learn much, or they just don’t bother to go any more. The local economy sucks and their citizens can’t find work, so they’re leaving in droves to seek greener pastures.
Why in heaven’s name can’t they control their border?
What? Oh. My mistake.
I guess we’re going to Arizona, not Mexico. Whoops.
By the way, did I mention that this mess is all Bush’s fault?
