intellectual vanities… about close to everything

AFP – German Chancellor Angela Merkel will address a joint session of the US Congress…

In her weekly podcast, Merkel called the invitation a “great honour” and said she would use the occasion to thank the United States for backing German unification in 1990 — 11 months after the Wall’s fall — with “great enthusiasm and fondness”.

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. How stupid does the chancellor believe Germans to be? Isn’t delivering enthusiastic and fond speeches in Washington dulling people’s mind, rather than being an honour? How about fondness and enthusiasm in Khabul for a change?
