<nettime> putting the names bush and hitler in the same sentence

Schroeder won elections in Germany. The "German way" paid well.
The only problem is that the "German way" went in the opposite
direction of the "American way" this time. And Schroeder nearly
miscalculated the unpopularity of American pit-bull president in
Europe.

For example, his (former) justice minister putting Bush's name in
the same sentence with Hitler's name did not really fly very well. It
was a too obvious attempt to vote-grabbing by a sensationalist
libel. What exactly did George do so far to deserve being put in the
same file with Adolf? He used war talk to mask domestic troubles.
Well, hello, most of politicians do that, and not all of them become
Hitlers.

true, true, but wasn't there something about a certain mister bush being
prosecuted (not this present one) for illegal bank dealings with the nazis
in 1942?

follow the money, an iraqi war investment of $1000 per us citizen is a
quite a good deal to ensure that the history of the 21st century will be
at least as interesting as that of the previous one. and, on the bright
side, the cost may be as little a $300 - $500 per head. good value!! order
now!! as seen on tv!!

cheers
