they say stuff they think the electorate (we) prefers to hear.
True, and they spend a lot of time and money deciding what different people want to hear and how best to say it to them, Looks like the CDU made the mistake of being a bit to honest and hoping they could rely on policies rather than PR, A bit like Labour in the UK.
Good 'technical' leaders like Gordon Brown, Angela Merkel etc know how to run a country, however they rarely excite the easily excited who'd rather have a tiny-handed psychopath or a blond philanderer in charge. Far worse as leaders, however their antics amuse the easily amused.
Sweden ... rapiest hellholes.
A country which of course he comments on but has never been to.
Is he trying to suggest that King Carl Gustav of Sweden (since the county was mentioned in the context of monarchy) ris some sort of rapist, or is he just trumpeting his usual off-topic wibbling for the sake of it, just to seek the attention he craves?
Yeah, I know, they redefined "rape" to make their women feel better while being "raped" to the new definition.
If it's gratuitous, nasty, tasteless and just plain tawdry, he will post it here.
