I think that is a bit much.  I was however thinking today that it's cute 
and cool that EU is working so hard to be America'.
I'm not qualified to have a deep opinion on this, so take it as an 
"American impressionist" view, but it sure seems like a nice, warty, 
instructive convergence to stable democracy / capitalism.  Vis a vis 
"F*** France", at some point the errors will go from being buried in 
layers of nationalism to clear merits of different approaches competing 
under the same rules.

As for the US being a joke, well, maybe too many of us are.  There were 
certainly a lot of sheep in NO, including police and a National Guard 
unit.  I suspect that a few dozen farmers or other real doers would have 
whipped things into shape, if they weren't stopped by the police that is.
