Elections done, now what?

The advanced elections are over and the result really pisses me off. Apart from my political preferences I would have hoped for a clear result, either for the politicians in charge or for the opposition. Now both of the big parties lost and are only divided by a small margin of under 1 percent.
What we saw on tv last night was grotesque, each party was trying to blandish their results. No one really had the balls to admit mistakes or to honestly say, that they lost.
But the most bizarre appearance was Schr

    Yeah, he’s like out of his mind. To give him some credit, they obviously gained many, many votes in the last two weeks, maybe even in the last few days before the elections, but the way he portrays himself and his parties results is just unacceptable.

    An arrogant rudeboy bombaclad that schroeder is.
    Almost worse than Lafontaine in ’90.
    Luckily i voted green and they make the “jamaica” coalition possible and burn down Babylon.
    So we get Merkel, Westerwelle and Fischer in one cabinet. Sounds interesting.
    That’s 4 Fringe Groups ruling the nation. Eastgermans, Women, Gays and Nature aware people.

    Like hell you will. Germany just jumped into the frozen hell of the great coalition. Have fun with it, it doesn’t hurt – much.

    Hehe… that’s like the “Unwort” of the week, “Jamaica” coalition. I have yet to imagine Fischer, Merkel and Westerwelle agreeing on anything – like what they will order for dinner.

    “Schwampel” sounds way better than Jamcica coalition. :)

    I also think that they’ll have a grand coalition in the end.

    I voted Gysi + SPD and I still cannot understand how can someone say that they really prefer Merkel ruling with Green. Is the main thing is that the Greens will be in power?

    I prefer her ruling with Green. See, I just said it. :) And then again, I don’t understand how someone can vote for the SED successor “Die Linke”.

    The irony in democracy is, that those people are allowed in, and that they get second chances all the time.

    You have Gregor Gysi, who took an active part in a party and regime restraining people from free speech, free elections and everything else that comes with freedom, and on the other hand, Oskar Lafontaine, who let down the republic already.
