Roll over Herr Präsident

Frau Angie got her way in the end – the longest session of the German Federal Assembly finally elected her faithful party soldier Christian Wulff to the office of President of the Federal Republic of Germany.

The opposition candidate Joachim Gauck, a civil rights activist in Stalinist East Germany, made a respectable showing, but the refusal of the Linke Party – successor to the … Stalinist SED state party of former East Germany, prevented him from upending the candidate of the center-right coalition’s loyalist candidate.

This longest session ever was a real loose-loose scenario … Merkel’s regime looks weak, the opposition looks fractured, and the Linke  party looks like jerks. Way to go. Good luck Herr Wulff.
