but this is probably cool with most of you

No, playing the Nazi/Hitler card is lazy.

Man, I think that fudge's pretty lame too. Going straight from disagreeing with an administration's policies to them automatically being Nazis is so drymounting lazy and uninspiring to me. I find it more tiresome than provocative.

Just curious, do you actually like the Obama Nazi piece or are you simply playing devils advocate on the political angle? I had a strong initial reaction against the visual but would be interested in hearing a differing opinion if you have one.

And generally offensive. I can't think of many people I would honestly compare to Hitler.
Edit: While I don't personally find either offensive, I can see how someone could. I also think they're both terrible. Not because I'm a Bush/Obama supporter mind you, but rather because they are both lazy political hyperbole to the extreme and neither one shows me a shred of artistic originality.

I think it's bad policy to hold Adolf or anybody sacrosanct when it comes to murderers- none is any better than another.
Otherwise, if my innocent family was wiped out by a drone or helicopter attack you'd have a very hard time making any distinction whatsoever between the Commander in Chief and Hitler to me.

ps this poster is fudge.
just a foil for me today, thanks

mostly devil's advocate. don't recall many objections around here to bush being portrayed that way, or portrayed as being assassinated in a movie, etc.

nice to see people condemning both, at the same time, for the same reasons
