Congratulations to the German Greens for increasing their support in the German Federal elections from 8.1% to 10.7%. It is a shame they will remain in opposition, but that they will have more MPs to advocate for Green values.
Also, congratulations to the German Pirate Party for receiving about 2% of the vote in the election. While not the 5% they needed to get MPs in the Bundestag, still quite a respectable showing for such a new party. Keep up the fight!
BTW, there is an interesting discussion about the election at Matthew Yglesias blog.
