Setting aside for a moment the site's uninformed and biased discussion of how American elections are conducted, I wonder whether the site would also acknowledge that it's possible in Germany for the winner to lose, and the losers to win? For example, had a red-green-yellow coalition emerged from last fall's German election, the CDU/CSU would have been shut out even though it won a plurality of the vote. Even in Germany, popular-vote totals don't necessarily control the election's outcome. (But I suppose that doesn't matter as long as the outcome is the "correct" one.)
