Calderon Inaugurated As Mexican President, Lucha Libre Style

Like a play from a Mexican wrestling match, Felipe Calderon ascended to Mexico’s Presidency lucha libre style. In one corner, the odds on favorites: El Fox, El Calderon and El Mexican Military’s top brass. And in the other corner, the underdogs, members of the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution or PRD.

Members of the PRD, whose candidate, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, narrowly lost the presidential election vowed not to let the inauguration in front of the Mexican Congress take place.

At the sound of the bell, both sides came out swinging. El Fox and El Calderon predictably entered the Arena, normally known as the Mexican Congress, through a secret door in the rear. The fans jeered. Members of the PRD, who had been hold up for days refusing to leave the ring, began pushing and shoving trying to block “El Calderon” from reaching the podium. The crowd cheered. But the tag team of El Fox, El Calderon and El Army was too powerful for the leftist Democrats. And El Fox managed to hand off the green, white and red presidential championship belt to the referee who quickly handed it to El Calderon with ballet like precision. And El Calderon was crowned champion of the United States of Mexico. He wore the belt proudly for the world to see. The only thing missing was Geraldo Rivera.

So now Mexico has a new president, El Super Calderon
