    This seems to require a handful of “say what you will but at least Hitler was” responses.

    Hey! At least Hitler could give a speech without a teleprompter!

    Has Obama ever painted anything?

    You know. That sort of thing.Report

    Wait, I thought he was the Joker. Damn, this is confusing. Can he be both? I’m damn sure that the Joker can’t make the trains run on time.

    If the Obama-haters could get their act together, they’d agree on what bad historical figure Obama is most like. If they were cultured, they’d realize that there’s so much more than Stalin, Chamberlain, or Hitler to choose from. Why not the Emperor Tiberius? With him, you get a combination of sexual perversion, the deep corruption that comes with absolute power, and someone whose rise to the throne was less than legitimate (points to avoid: that he governed well for most people and he was a great general).

    Or how about his successor, Caligula? Moving off of Rome, there’s all manner of British monarchs that could work. Henry VIII is too obvious, but why not Charles I, elitist subverter of democracy and opponent of the good, freedom-fighting Oliver Cromwell? And it doesn’t even have to be a real character. Khan, of course, was a world leader and a brilliant administrator, who just happened to be evil and determined to kill that good old Iowa farmboy. KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!

    So many options, if only the wingnuts had more imagination.Report
