Tie In German Election For Chancellor

German voters gave no party nor candidate the majority it needed in Sunday's election to form a new government and choose a new chancellor. The current anti-American socialist dirtbag Chancellor Gerhard Schröder and his Social-Democratic Party declared victory, as did his challenger, Angela Merkel, of the right-of-center Christian-Democratic Union.

Schröder represents the status quo of a Germany slowly failing due to the increasing burden of its socialist model. Merkel represents necessary but painful changes to a more market-based model where companies are freer to hire and fire employees, so that they can create the jobs needed to resolve the unemployment problem. While the Germans are worried that their present course is headed for catastrophe they fear change more.

The main argument against Merkel is shown above, where she is depicted in a float in the Rose Monday carnival parade in Duesseldorf emerging from Uncle Sam's butt waving American flags. It's one of those subtly nuanced European arguments that appeals to their fabled higher intelligence.
