CONFIRMED: 7.6% for PIRATES in largest German State! THEY WILL HAVE SEATS in the state PARLIAMENT!

Led by Joachim PAUL, the Pirate Party, the somewhat libertarian German Pirate Party won 7.6% of the vote in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany’s California!

The Pirates were dancing in the streets in a graffiti-smeared neighborhood near the central station as hundreds of the party’s young, laptop-toting followers crowded into a local disco called Zakk to dance the night away.

Joachim Paul, captain of the crew and a biochemical engineer turned politician, took the stage and fired up the crowd, shouting into a sea of trademark orange Pirate flags: “The Pirates in North Rhine-Westphalia are in the state parliament! Tomorrow it’s on to the federal parliament!”

Watch out Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the people might have choices!  At least a decent victory party!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
