Hitlery: "America's Margaret Thatcher"?  

Tuesday, January 23, 2007

I had put together a great post yesterday, and just before I went to the button to save it, my browser crashed. So much for the superiority of Firefox (oh who am I kidding? IE would have just locked up).

Anyway, John Hawkins re-posted a great post from StephenBainbridge.com about a recent piece by the Times of London calling Hitlery (of all people) "America's Margaret Thatcher".

What a fucking insult to the free people of the world! Bainbridge put together this chart in defense of Mrs. Thatcher's incredible prowess as a stateswoman, likewise showing Hitlery's similarly incredible inferiority to the woman who led the British effort to bring the Soviet Union to its knees.
