Bush-Chimp Again, But No Hitler

The latest episode in the BushChimpHitler follies (but without the Hitler reference this time) was brought to you by the Belgian Interior Minister Patrick Dewael. Apparently he signed a letter promoting a training package used to help police deal with unruly soccer fans. But the package included a presentation which pictured President George W. Bush's face in various expressions alongside photographs of a chimpanzee.

Mr. Dewael said he was unaware of the pictures when he signed the letter and that the idea was "of bad taste."
