Y’all saw the Abraham Lincoln Top Gun Photo Op with Bush? If you want to be even more unnerved, take a quick look at Triumph of the Will. The whole spectacle was taken straight from the Leni Riefenstahl school of propaganda filmmaking. You had the great leader descending from the sky like a Wagnarian deity, you had the overly long walk to the podium to create max tension and awe…its all there. If Bush wants to stop being compared to Hitler he should stop acting like the fellow, n’est pas?
