Bush and Hitler

Some of you may be wondering what Bush (George W. i.e.) has got to do with Hitler (Adolf i.e.). I was shocked that Blogger.com should suggest that there is such a close relationship. What a scandal! How can the President, the Numero Uno, of the world's free-est nation be linked in any way to Fascism at all? Besides, didn't many people flee Europe to get away from people like that?

Notwithstanding the controversy over the present American government's alleged secret prisons in Europe and the CIA's covert operations (a open secret for many many years), I believe Americans will not stoop so low as to call its President a Fascist.

But that's what Blogger.com suggested when I used its spell-check feature on my previous post. It couldn't understand 'Bushism', so it suggested 'Fascism' as a likely alternative - and that's the only alternative it offered! I would have expected 'Bushido' (a Japanese art form) as a closer alternative. Don't believe me? Go check it out yourself.

Has Google, through Blogger.com, a hidden agenda here? There has been recent reports questioning whether Google is good or evil. It would seem that these rumours are not unfoun.....

Before I go any further, I'd better not bite (off more of) the hand that feeds this blog.
