Hey, let's omit the references to banana republics in this context, OK? To do otherwise is to libel fruit-based oligarchies everywhere.

you're right about one thing -- bush isn't hitler; he's more like our version of kaiser bill -- an aristocratic fool who likes to dress up in military uniforms.

i dread the day that america goes truly fascist and we get our version of hitler -- as evil at the folks at little green footballs or stormfront, and as charasmatic/popular as jfk, reagan,clinton, mick jagger, john wayne, michael jordan and others combined.

but that will come after an economic collapse and being on a losing side of a war.

or maybe not. some historians say things in france weren't at revolutionary boil when the french revolution happened -- as opposed to russia in 1917 and the russian revolution


holy crap! the soldier dress-up... the selected crowds of followers... militaristic lock-downs... legacy official... shutting out dissent... he's not doing anything drastic about North Korea because W IS TURNING INTO KIM JONG IL...


One minor quibble: George Washington did wear a uniform while he was president. Once. When he personally led the troops that put down the Whiskey Rebellion. But in that case, he was, in fact, the military commander. Unlike Dubya, who wants all the trappings of being a military commander with none of the responsibilities.

Otherwise, excellent post!


Darn. I forgot about the Whiskey Rebellion. Thanks for reminding me, pleog. And if W. wants to jump into a Humvee with hillbilly armor, and join the troops fighting it out in Iraq, he can dress up like Douglas MacArthur, if we wants, or George Washington, and I'll cheer him on.
