From JOSHUA GREEN at the Atlantic:
An election year already notable for its menagerie of extreme and unusual candidates can add another one: Rich Iott, the Republican nominee for Congress from Ohio’s 9th District, and a Tea Party favorite, who for years donned a German Waffen SS uniform and participated in Nazi re-enactments.
Iott, whose district lies in Northwest Ohio, was involved with a group that calls itself Wiking, whose members are devoted to re-enacting the exploits of an actual Nazi division, the 5th SS Panzer Division Wiking, which fought mainly on the Eastern Front during World War II.
Now, now, kids, let’s not get all bent out of shape. Rich Iott is just a family guy with Republican family values. I’ve found some pictures that will show you what a nice guy ol’ Rich really is. In fact, he’s just like us (well, those of us who are not Christine O’Donnell, who is “you” (if you are not a witch). Before he grabs a shave, Rich takes a nice long bath and enjoys his morning tea while his cat, Rudolf Hiss, looks on.
Look how proud he is of that Susan B. Anthony List endorsement!
From The New York Times:
MOSCOW — A European Union-brokered deal between Russia and Ukraine to restore the flow of heating fuel to the Continent seemed to be falling apart Sunday evening, less than a day after it had been signed, with Moscow objecting to conditions that Ukraine attached to the agreement after Russia had already signed it.

That clever scamp, Jerry Falwell, had us all fooled! While it was reported that he died at the age of 73, he really just went undercover in, of all places, Poland!! You forgot Poland, didn’t you? Don’t feel bad, everyone does. Anyway, Ol’ Jerry’s cover got blown (oops! Are you allowed to say blown and Jerry’s name in the same sentence?) as he continues to fight the Global War on Homosexuality (GWOH). Check out this item from BBC news:
A senior Polish official has ordered psychologists to investigate whether the popular BBC TV show Teletubbies promotes a homosexual lifestyle.
The spokesperson for children’s rights in Poland, Ewa Sowinska, singled out Tinky Winky, the purple character with a triangular aerial on his head.
“I noticed he was carrying a woman’s handbag,” she told a magazine. “At first, I didn’t realise he was a boy.”
That never would have happened without Reverend Jerry’s influence. Still not convinced? Well, some pictures surfaced after Jerry was spotted in Poland this week.
That woman he is with looks so familiar, but I just can’t remember where I have seen her before…oh, nevermind, it’ll come to me.
Still not convinced? Here’s more proof!
