¡Que viva México!

Despite the obvious absurdity in a government spending a reputed quarter of a billion dollars on celebrating a nonsensical cornucopia of patriotism, I nonetheless hope that everyone has a great time tonight in Mexico and that the whole fiesta passes off peacefully. Eisenstein’s film is up on YouTube, incidentally. As for vivas, I think I would stretch to: ¡Viva Cuauhtemoc! ¡Viva Zapata! ¡Viva Cárdenas! That might be it. Oh yeah, more importantly, ¡Viva Cantinflas! and ¡Viva Blue Demon!
