Sorry, But The World Cup Isn’t Going To End Gridlock

An op-ed in today’s New York Times describes the Mexican president’s plan to sneak controversial ***BESTPIX*** Brazil v Mexico: Group A - 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazillegislation through the Mexican Congress as the distracted masses cheer on the national team in Brazil: “To debate and pass laws that could open Pemex, the nationalized oil company, to foreign investment, the Mexican Congress scheduled legislative sessions from June 10 to 23, dates precisely coinciding with you know what.”

I kind of doubt this ploy would work in the United States. Soccer is increasingly popular here, but if the Democrats had somehow passed immigration reform during the second half of USA-Portugal, people would have noticed.
