It's Comin' Back Around Again

Aguachile flagged a little item a while back that we meant to comment on but didn't:
Oh, the irony. Paloma Guillén, sister of Rafael Sebastián Guillén Vicente, better known as Subcomandante Marcos of the EZLN, will be campaign coordinator for Enrique Peña Nieto in one of Mexico's electoral circumscriptions, according to the political gossip column in Milenio.
We had some super-clever joke in mind about Peña Nieto's campaign slogan being "Our Word is Our Weapon" - because, you know, with this guy, his words seem to be a weapon pointed at his own foot, which happens to be in his mouth.  (Thank you, thank you - we'll be here for the late show.)

But then a couple days ago, Peña officially kicked off his campaign.  His rallying cry?

¡Ya Basta! ("Enough Already!") Marcos would be proud.

We can't wait for the TV ads:
