A new parody hits from Elmar Brandt: Gerhard and Angela.

Is there any video of this popular song on Internet?

Gerhard and Angela (,,3-1644789,00.html)

"A girl from the East is ahead of me — why can’t she be a beauty? “Her mouth is tugged down as deep as a cellar, her hair is a helmet.
“And her breath smells of gherkins from the Spreewald.”

The female role is played by Anne Onken, 27, a comedienne who captures some of Frau Merkel’s eastern German dialect. “Angela Merkel has been improving her appearance,” she said yesterday. “But that hairstyle is still very odd.”

Battle over her hairstyle:

(From Reuters)
Two top German hairdressers are fighting over who deserves the credit for Angela Merkel’s new hairstyle after the conservative leader traded a low-maintenance page-boy cut for a more stylish look just before the election.
Celebrity hairdresser Udo Walz, who has also cut Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s hair, and rival Martina Acht are claiming they did the Merkel makeover before her narrow win in a September 18 general election over Schroeder’s Social Democrats.
"She came to me for advice just before (U.S. President) George W. Bush came to Germany (in February) and ever since then her look has been completely different," Acht, whose salon is in the western city of Offenbach, told Reuters.
"Since then, she seems so much more feminine," added Acht, whose battle of the scissors against Walz has featured in tabloid newspapers this week.
But Walz, who is Germany’s best-known celebrity hairdresser, told Reuters from his Berlin studio that he has long been working on Merkel’s hair and that the 51-year-old has an appointment with him every four weeks.
