Interesting to see the euroskeptics crash, burn, and take the the FDP down with them.

I hope a CDU majority won’t slow down any movement on gay rights (although Germany is in a better position than most of the US).

AfD calls itself a “neu volkspartei”. They’re polling better than 5% in Baden-Wurttemburg, but landtag election isn’t until 2016.

Good news! Germany is a perfect example of how to have a thriving economy with strong social safety nets.

Also, too, Chuck Todd ‘reports’ that Merkel and Obama’s relationship is close with good chemistry! Rubbing shoulders with the winners.

4.9% - even if that doesn’t get them into the Bundestag - is anything but “Crash and Burn”. Also keep in mind that Die Linke is very much euroskeptic as well.
They definitely did take the FDP down, however. And as much Schadenfreude as I might have right now - the prospect of an absolute majority for the CDU is fucking scary.

re: #4 Inner Partisan

I’m just kind of wondering what kind of weirdness is going to emerge out of the libertarian mess in Germany right now. Disaster or not, I’d expect all sorts of weird alliances and entryism in the next few years.

Oh well, at least we won’t have to hear from union-hating, Gaddafi-supporter Guido Westerwelle for a while.

Right on that. Westerwelle is a prick.

You and me, brother. That guy’s done, fortunately.

(If I were especially mean-spirited - which I’m not, of course - I’d hope for him to take up parachute jumping as a hobby.)
