"Nazis, everywhere. I hate Nazis"

Paraphrasing a hybrid of Indiana Jones, Jake Blues and Ryan O'Reilly from Oz, various pundits keep hyping up the fascists on the march. This is most marked in relation to US presidential election, where some see a triumphant Bush as initiating the fourth reich. To be honest, the Young Ones character Rick was more accurate when he called someone a complete and utter fascist if ever he didn't get his own way. It falls to Scott McLemee to remind us what fascism looked like when it was respectable among the US elite.*
