Deutschland uber alles
The Christian Democrats are leading the German polls, as they have been for nearly all of the last year. This is excellent. When Schroder et al came into power in 1998, ending 16 years of conservative government, observers buried us in commentary about the rise of the European left. Daniel Cohn-Bendit’s buddy Joschka Fischer, a Grune (Green) became Ausslandminister. Now they’re heading for the political graveyard. Steady on, Stoiber.
