The Resume

    (July 17, 1954- )
    Nicknamed 'Angie' by supporters
    Chancellor of Germany (2005- )

Why she might be annoying:

    She is a frumpy Hamburger.
    She was not nearly as charismatic as her opponent Gerhard Schroeder.
    She is said to have barely any friends outside of her immediate family.
    She shot to national fame when she flip-flopped and broke with her party and Chancellor Helmut Kohl during a bribery scandal.
    She had earlier called allegations of Saudi Arabian bribery in exchange for tanks 'totally absurd.'
    She became Chancellor after she made a deal to keep the opposing party in most of the ministries.
    She is aloof concerning economic terminology, confusing gross and net income twice during a debate.
    Some feel she is just a German prototype of Margaret Thatcher, as she is a former scientist in charge of a conservative political party.

Why she might not be annoying:

    She grew up in East Germany.
    'Angie' by the Rolling Stones was her campaign theme song.
    She is a moderate on social issues like gay marriage.
    She is Germany's first woman chancellor and the first woman to rule Germany since Empress Theophania in 983.
    She has a doctorate in physics.
