K-Lo Irritates

I shouldn't let conservative columnists get to me, but they are so scurrilous these days! Regarding Barack's recent travels:
Obama’s European trip, of course, provided a wide stage for his self-assured pomp and inconsequence. The speech at the Berlin Victory Column furnished the fireworks of the trip, but it — with its Leni Riefenstahl-like rally posters translated into German — did not stand alone in audacity.
Leni Riefenstahl directed the Nazi-propaganda film "Triumph Of The Will". I don't think that Obama's campaign material had any connection, unintended or otherwise, with Nazi propaganda. Big crowds don't automatically mean fascism. Sometimes they mean genuine enthusiasm. Think about it, K-Lo.
