Ad Compares Taiwanese President to Hitler
While we Americans are getting all up in arms about 9/11 imagery in presidential ads, a candidate in the Taiwanese presidential election ran an ad that compares the sitting president to Hitler. The ad appeared in three of the nations largest daily newspapers. It was placed by the Kuomintang-led opposition for candidate Lien Chan and likens Taiwanese President Chen to Hitler.
Of course, everybody got irate, issued pompous quotes and finally apologized. Politics are the same everywhere.
