I try to understand "all things Danish"....at least as much as possible, but after living here almost three years, I still have no concept how things can change in the Danish government. And I have a feeling that even after living here a decade or more, I still won't fully get it...
I went to work yesterday, knowing that (according to the rumors) this umm....lovely lady was going to be fired from her position as Integrations Minister of Denmark.
Ok, I digress.
Anyway, I went to work, figuring that by 5pm, we'd have a new member of Folketinget (Danish parliament); however by the time I got home from work, they had conducted what we in Texas refer to as a FRUIT BASKET TURNOVER!
Folks were fired, others "resigned for personal reasons" (yeah, whatever TN!), and all of a sudden we had all kinds of new faces in the Folketinget!
So maybe my quandary is not with learning HOW to understand the inner workings of the Danish government, but rather, HOW ON EARTH we can DUPLICATE this practice in the US? Wouldn't that be great to go to work one morning, knowing that by the time your work day ended, Barack would have done his own fruit basket turnover on Capitol Hill because people WERE NOT DOING THE JOB THEY WERE ELECTED TO DO?
Hmm..... these Danes just might be onto something!
