Wither Americans!

Let me tell you, the Hun in us Germans is still alive!
BOSTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - A serious car crash involving a local lawmaker and a suspected illegal immigrant is threatening to reignite already heated debates about immigration on Beacon Hill, according to police reports obtained by FOX25.

State Rep. Mike Moran of Brighton was rear-ended by a suspected illegal immigrant this week. The suspect was wearing a Mexican costume at the time of the crash where he slammed into Moran at 60 mph.

The suspect, 27-year-old Isaias Naranjo, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a valid license. According to the report, when told of the serious charges he would be facing, he just laughed.

[...]

The suspect, whose blood alcohol content was .25 at the time of the accident according to the police report, is being held on $50,000 cash bail.
So an illegal immigrant caused an accident driving while under the influence of alcohol. He had a blood alcohol content of 0.25 when the accident happened and when he was caught he found that funny, and now you have your knickers ... ooops, your lingerie ... in a knot.

You think THAT is noteworthy? What a bunch of wussies you are!

Let me tell you that WE had a bishop, notabene the pastoral head of the umbrella organisation of Germany's Protestant churches, notabene female, who was caught drunk driving because she had overlooked a red light and her blood alcohol content was a whopping 1.54.

And did we make such a fuss about it? Hell, no! After only three months she was received with standing ovations at the General Assembly of AA in the Germanosphere oecumenic church congress in Munich because all bishops of both denominations had tried and found out that even the most resilient of them had been pissed as a newt at .75 and wouldn't have been able to FIND his car, let alone open and drive it.

THAT, dear Americans, is news!

And now go and listen to Panzerlied.

So she got her job by being able to drink all the others under the table, I assume:

Hey, we have exactly the same idiom: "jemanden unter den Tisch trinken".

If you warch this, you'll see that she is delivering a sermon while being drunk as a gang of Russians. It starts at 0:00:20 and you don't even need to understand German. Look at the stunned expressions among the congregation. The leading comedian in our country unearthed it for his show.

Actually Nora, the reason it is so funny and newsworthy is that Rep. Moran helped pass the legislation that made Massachusetts a "sanctuary state". This was a case of his chickens coming home to roost. The illegal was rather insolent in declaring that he knew nothing would happen to him because he understands full well what "sanctuary state" means. By the way, Massachusetts and California are VERY different from the rest of the nation.

Interesting, 'gator! And I'd say serves the Rep. right. I was just being a bit fatuous and needed an opportunity to bring my favourite bishopette in. ;-)
