Presidential status check

Christian Wulf, the president of Germany (a figurehead in our constitutional order) is presently caught in a bit of a scandal. Everyone is wondering if and when he will resign.  If he actually resigns I might use the selection of his successor as an excuse to explain the German constitution on this blog. But for now, what if you aren't obsessive about German news?

Well, then here's the website for you: istchristianwulffnochimamt.de efficiently conveys the one bit of information everybody wants to know. IstChristianWulfNochImAmt is German for IsChristianWulfStillInOffice.  At present the indicator stands at "Ja" (yes) if he should resign it would presumably change to "Nein".
