And of course, we couldn't have an anti-Bush protest story without invoking this corallary to Godwins law: As any discussion of George W. Bush grows larger, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.
Red Byrd, from New Mexico's eastern mountain region, drove 40 hours to stand with her sign in the cold as Bush's limousine went by. Her sign had a caricature of Bush on one side, his forehead emblazoned with a swastika and surrounded by the words "WAR CRIMINAL." The reverse side showed injured or dead Iraqis and U.S. soldiers.

"I'm an American patriot," Byrd said. "I'm also German, so I know how" these things get started.
If you are looking for someone to argue with a German regarding the dangers of National Socialism, you will need to look elsewhere.
