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.

Choosing the new president
In Germany, we elect our president the following way:
all members of our high parliament (600something) and the same number members who are sent from them Bundesländer - politicians and prominents, like actors, singers, athlets build the Bundesversammlung who chooses between the nominated candidates.

While the SPD nominated a woman - Gesine Schwan - the CDU nominated Horst Köhler, an international finance professional.
Usually the party with the lesser chances nominates a woman, since all these men there won't elect Gesine Schwan.

Now the voting has become some special Explosiveness after the nomination of Horst Filbinger. Hans Filbinger had to resign in 1978 because he was a Nazi-Judge and is said to be responsible also for death-sentences.(Yes you US readers, here we don't like people who send others to death!).

I have no fucking idea, how anyone could have thought they could send Filbinger and noone would notice.
