Ireland gave the EU the “yes” vote it was looking for on the Lisbon treaty.

The European suprantional experiment is really fascinating. Europeans seem constantly in a state of low-level disgruntlement with the whole thing, but it’s really the most amazingly ambitious and successful liberal project of our time. And grumbling aside, basically nobody wants to get rid of it. Sixty years ago, I don’t think anyone would have believed it would be possible.
