John Howard's shaky comparison

In a tedious row over international cricket, Australian Prime Minister John Howard has made a ridiculous comparison of Robert Mugabe's ruling ZANU-PF party to Adolf Hitler's Nazi party. I think we can all agree, that however bad Mugabe's rule has been for Zimbabwe, the comparison of Mugabe to Hitler is inapt, offensive, and absurd.

After all, Hitler managed to fix the German economy.

UPDATE: Howard backs off a bit.

UPDATE II: This is my 100th post of 2007. I told you that I'd be stepping things up this year.
