Uncle Sam (The US) Poops Out Angela Merkel of Germany

It’s carnival time in the Rheinland, Germany. This is what some people think of their leader – Angela Merkel. This comes from a newsletter I get teaching the German language. I have to wade through this crap and figure out what it means. I now know enough German to be dangerous.

Jedes Jahr wird besonders im Rheinland der Karneval gefeiert. Dabei geht es nicht immer nur um Party, Kostüme und Alkohol: Der Karneval wird auch oft genutzt, um Kritik an der Politik zu üben.‎

Ob Angela Merkel, der Papst oder die Europäische Union: An Karneval wird alles durch den Kakao gezogen, was Rang und Namen hat. Jedes Jahr am Rosenmontag ziehen die Motivwagen durch die Straßen und werden von Tausenden von Menschen bejubelt. Auf den Wagen kann man oft handgemachte Figuren sehen, die Politiker in komischen Situationen zeigen.

Here is a ruff English translation from Google Translate:

Every year is celebrated especially in the Rhineland carnival. It’s not always about partying, costumes and alcohol: The carnival is also often used to criticize the policy.

Whether Angela Merkel, the pope or the European Union: On Carnival is all pulled his leg, what the big names. Every year on the Monday the floats parade through the streets, and be cheered on by thousands of people. In the car, you can often see handmade figures, politicians show in comic situations.
