PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE MAN BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN:

Is There Something to Anti-Americanism? (Bernard Chazelle, 9/20/04, History News Network)

When President Bush is not busy hailing freedom, he is usually occupied extolling liberty. On the lofty matters of democracy, freedom, and human rights, his administration proudly talks the talk. The walking—as ever the weak link—has gotten alarmingly wobbly. It was once proud and steady: In the wake of World War II, the United States bestrode the globe like a colossus with twice the relative economic clout it enjoys today. Fresh from liberating the world from tyranny, America was universally revered. Where Europe stood for ruin, fascism, and colonization, the U.S. spelled wealth, freedom, and self-determination.

Gerald Ford should demand a recount, he was apparently right about Poland being free.

When you can find a violation of Godwin's Law in the rubrics alone ("Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Limbaugh") you can pretty well dispense with actually reading such crap.

And comparing Republicans to Nazis is such tired cliche. Honestly, these people are supposed to be the creative ones, can't they come up with something better than a threadbare old Nazi analogy? Anytime somebody tells me that Republicans are Nazis hellbent on world domination I say, "Yeah, be nice to me and I'll be gentle when I'm stuffing you into the cattle car!"
