ROSE MONDAY: WESTERN GERMAN STREETS FILL UP AS CARNIVAL SEASON PEAKS 

Obsessed European liberals can't get over Bush, Christianity and USA

In Mainz, one float was decorated with an effigy of US President George W Bush, backside bared, while German opposition leader Angela Merkel, known for her pro-American positions, figured running up a ladder behind him.

Despite an outcry that began two weeks before the float had been put on the road, organisers there said they were not caving in to any censorship, despite the imminent visit to Germany by Bush on February 23.
