At least twice when browsing through German online news sites, I've run into the following banner ad for Schröder's reform package 'Agenda 2010':

The link goes to the official government web site (English). Now, I know the line between partisan politics and government in a parliamentary democracy is rather fuzzy, and it's not like, say, Schröder is sending the Bundesgrenzschutz to round up opposition state legislators for a quorum call. But it's still a little strange to see the government spending tax money to advertise for itself.

Then again, I guess the White House web site isn't that much different.
