Lilli Marleen

Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

You look for the Song Lilli Marleen?

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Well, I've found the Presidential Prayerteam but as you can imagine, I think they're pretty boring.
But then, Josh found Babes against Bush, whom I like pretty much more and I could imagine the average male American will so, too.

Besides all fun - will such things help to influence a vote? I don't know. I'm still trying to find out what makes average people go and vote for someone or for a special party. I mean, is it the TV Spots? Is it the looks? It can't be the contents, because just a few people are interested in them.
It can't be just the looks, because many international male politicians look pretty poor. For example, Kohl was extremely overweight and has had his three hairs combed straight around the head and Schroeder, about whom some women say he looks good, is so short, the only one I've seen being even shorter is Putin which makes him great for putting a glass of beer on his head.
So, what makes people elect someone? I guess it's the same if you ask what makes a smoker smoke a special brand of cigarettes? They're all unhealthy, all make bad breath and are effing expensive, but people defend their choice of brand with all they have. Maybe it's "the feeling". Maybe all you have to do is to make people feel modern, young and "hip". Well, if nothing else...
