Beware Greeks Bearing Gifts

BooMan on on the Right:

There is also a strange obsession with Europe. Specifically, it seems to be desperately important to a lot of right-wingers that America not become more like European countries. 

Reminded me of Downton Abbey:

ANNA
Now, Mr Lang, are you ready? 

MR LANG
I think so. Now, it's always the left, and not ladies first?

ANNA
No. Just follow Mr Carson. Start with Old Lady Grantham, then His Lordship, then just go on round. You must have done this before.

MR LANG
Not since the war started.

DAISY
I don't think I ever knew that. Why i'n't it just ladies first? Wouldn't it be more polite?

ANNA
That's the way it's done on the continent, and we don't like foreign ways here.

Indeed.
