Still More of Life's Little Ironies
Yesterday, Donald Rumsfeld compared critics of George W. Bush's leadership to the people who appeased the Nazis.
Today, George W. Bush has described his War on Terror as the successor to the war against the Nazis.
The irony is that the Bush family's wealth and political influence are founded in Prescott Bush's business dealings with the Nazi government.
Will some enterprising reporter ask Tony Snow whether, since George Bush deplores appeasing fascist regimes, he regrets his own family's support of Hitler's government?
[Edited to add]
I just remembered another reason it's ironic Rumsfeld is calling other people "appeasers".
