My first hero or better heroine
is chancellor Angela Merkel.
She demonstrates in an excellent way one does not need
any kind of intelligence to become a successful politician.
Let`s say just clever enough, shifty enough to do a blowjob
to the public at the right time.
A little instinct on how to steal and adopt core themes of political opponents
and to sell them hypocritically to anytime become ennobled in the public.
A little knowledge on how to eleminate autonomous party members
and to replace them with spineless sycophants to pretend homogeneity of the party.
A little active cerebellum of a reptile to get things going the way they should,
no need for a distinct vision or genuine substance,
just mere Darwinism of party programs.
In many ways she has shown what ego is and how it works.
