What would a columnist say if he were assigned to hype a hypothetical cage match between Hitler and George W. Bush? Could he add a new point that hasn't been made previously?

Obviously the public is weary of being reminded of the most apparent salient points such as:

Hitler won his country's top military honor in battle; George W wasn't it combat.

Hitler wrote a book that sold widely; George W's book may have been ghost written.

Hitler took extensive measures to make sure that his people were unaware that he and his men were committing war crimes. Folks were fearful that bad things would happen to the people who were interrogated by the Geheime Staatspolitzi (AKA Ge-sta-po) but they never knew for sure what the specifics were. Thus when the details were revealed during the Nuremburg War Crimes Trials, citizens of Germany were genuinely shocked and ashamed to learn what their leader had done in their name.

Hitler didn't involve the citizens of his country as co-conspirators in his war crimes.
