Review – The End of America

Naomi Wolf spends an hour and a half Chicken Little-ing the hell out of the Bush administration just in time for it to count as nothing more than the doorknob hitting him in the ass on the way out. Though she’s passionate about her points – many of which are perfectly pertinent – she ends up submerging her argument under a giant pile of false analogy and political ad rhetoric. In particular it was just ridiculous to compare Bush and his cohort to Hitler. Any government is going to suffer from some unpleasant parallels to Nazi Germany, but such similarities don’t automatically mean that the sky is falling. Mildly amusing
