DIPLOMACY Not to be upstaged by the Karen Hughes "listening tour," we ran our own version of diplomatic relations over the last few days South of the Border. I think the campaign was an unmitigated success. When in foreign lands, I try to represent my nation in the best possible manner by giving them The Libertarian Jackass Treatment. This weekend, for instance, we rolled into a bar crowded with locals deep in the heart of Mexico, introduced ourselves to the bartender, then purchased a round of tequila shots for each willing participant. The result? By the end of the night we witnessed about 100 new friends all singing along in English with Jay-Z's hook, "Bring 'em out, bring 'em out." They loved it so much the DJ ran it back twice at our request.
Then we all went out dancing 'til dawn. It's quite possible we haven't had this much fun since Spain.
What were we doing in Mexico? Attending a fundraiser at a winery, actually. This included bullfights, paella, excellent vino (even a petite syrah), beautiful women and Cuban cigars. Since the young ladies were flashing their Christian Dior all over the place, it's important to note that the wealthy upper class in Mexico appears to be far wealthier than most Americans.
Shout outs to David and Santos for coordinating and joining in on this Adventure.
