There's More Than One Absolut World

Sweden extended its hegemony over Finland in the 13th century. The Finnish language was spoken only by peasants, clergy, and local courts while Swedish became the official language of the aristocracy, nobility, and national government. Swedish is still the second official language spoken by 5.5% of the population.

(H/T Planck's Constant and Pink Flamingo Bar and, of coarse, Michele Malkin is on the case)

Not content to limit the avenging mockery to the Absolut home of Sweden, the Ideal World has washed over the planet.

We had our chance in 1848 and blew it.

Others have different opinions, though.

It certainly is, Tom. Except for the 58% of Mexican citizens who believe the Southwest was stolen by the US, that they are the rightful owners and can come and go as they please.
