But nothing here is as bad as in amurka. 'Schland doesn't have a menagerie of fools running for president and taken seriously.
That's true, you have them in office already. I remind you that the wingers' economic arguments in the primary here all amount to "Look what the Germans have done for Europe! We can do that here!" Not only are your leaders in with the our crazies ideologically, they're lighting the way for our crazies.
Also, too, and such as...the current US president and the former UK PM warned you that this would happen two. fucking. years ago, CH, and The Great Totally-Less-Fucked-Up-We-SwearsTM Germany sandbagged both of them and pimped austerity (not to mention the Chinese president launching an enormous stimulus program).
It takes a genuine talent for incompetence and crazy to make Barack Obama, Gordon Brown and Hu Jintao look good. (Cue the VW tagline. "That's the Power of German Engineering!")
And then your leaders stamped their feet like children and threatened to take us to court for trying to make sure our stimulus programs went to our benefit instead of allowing them to mooch off our efforts.
The only real differences between our psychopaths and yours at this point are that (1) ours think hip-hop makes Baby Jesus cry, (2) you're not allowed to have a serious military, and (3) our central bank -- yes, the central bank of Horrifyingly Anti-ScienceTM "Amurka" -- doesn't believe 2-1=5.
Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
