California Recall: With an assist from the L.A. Times, Davis reaches out to the anti-Hitler vote???
The long-anticipated dirty tricks of the Gray Davis Campaign (delivered to the voters courtesy of The L.A. Times) have reached a new low, which should surprise no one familiar with Gray Davis. But, one wonders just what constituency Davis is hoping to reach by smearing Arnold as a crypto-Nazi.
Presumably, the entire statistically significant portion of the California electorate is anti-Hitler, so I would guess that Davis is hoping to win the votes of the hopelessly credulous. Bad news, Mr. Soon-to-be Ex-Governor, by definition you already had a lock on that voting block!
Moreover, let's suppose, for argument's sake, that Mr. Schwarzenegger has very secretly harbored Nazi sympathies all these years (he is, after all, an actor; although such a convincing performance as a non-Nazi should garner a Lifetime Achievement Oscar), and let's further grant that it is noxious to admire genocidal dictators. How is it that neither The L.A. Times, nor any other Liberal organ, including the modern Democrat Party, has ever been scandalized by high-profile Liberal Democrats who have oozed admiration for the likes of Chairman Mao, Ho Chi Mihn, Daniel Ortega, or Fidel Castro?
I guess that, unlike Hitler, these heroes of the Left are the "good" genocidal dictators.
