So, I’m going to the Post Office. On the sidewalk outside, a couple of local yahoos have set up an “Impeach Obama” booth.

Okay, no problem, free speech & all that but – they’ve got posters of Obama with a Hitler moustache. Several of them, all over the place.

Now, as a student of history, and the son of a WWII vet, that particular image always makes my blood pressure spike. So I decide to say something about it.

I walk up, catch their eyes, and say, “I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but you’re going to hear it again.” I point at the poster. “Do you have any idea how off base that comparison is?”

One of them smirks. “I think it’s more accurate than you want to admit.”

I raise my voice. “My God, man, do you have the slightest idea who Charlie Chaplin even was?!”

Then I did an about-face, and marched off. The look on the guy's face was priceless!

Yes, I’m evil. But I’m good at it.

Heh. Nicely done.

You could also have brought up the World War 2 vet thing, but yeah, this was funnier.
