Another one of those “too close to call” elections

While we in the U.S. are busy with public tragedies (shootings) and comedies (presidential candidates), there’s been another national election in Europe!

The recent election in Denmark carries more than the usual nuances and interesting twists.

As the very unhappy British news rag, The Guardian, reports: “Breaking: Danish prime minister concedes defeat and resigns as party leader. Helle Thorning-Schmidt has just resigned.” The paper didn’t deign to mention the winner, pictured above, for about a dozen paragraphs.

Apparently, the WSJ wasn’t happy about the win either. Look at THEIR picture of Mr. Rasmussen! They said the campaign was “dominated by the immigration issue,” but IFO wonders if other dynamics weren’t at play.

Helle Thorning-Schmidt? You remember her, don’t you? Perhaps this will jog your memory (Sorry it is so big. It was the only one IFO could find that captured ALL of the delicious elements we wanted to include.):
