Merkel Magic

I don't care. I think she's brilliant. Angela Merkel confronts the fact that a migrant has been responsible for an atrocity in her country, and says "This makes no difference. We continue to accept them." Sure, she's autocratic, and cynics would accuse her of ignoring the anxieties of voters, but she's providing something much more important. Leadership, based on the conviction that we are responsible for each other. she may well pay the price for this electorally, but she gets my vote every time.
