Subject:        Now George Soros is Shylock, GOP says

One aspect of the ugly, offensive recent GOP smear of liberal
billionaire George Soros:

  "'No other single person represents the symbol and the substance of
globalism more than this Hungarian-born descendant of Shylock. He is the
embodiment of the Merchant from Venice,' wrote GOPAC, an organization
that helps elect GOP candidates, on its website last year.    In William
Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice," Shylock was the Jewish banker whose
venality would not stop him from cutting human flesh to repay loans."

Subject:        Now it's Niall Ferguson on George W. as Henry V

Last week it was Nicolas Kristoff in the NY Times. Now apologist for
empire Niall Ferguson discusses the comparison at great length in "The
Monarchy of George W. Bush" in the current issue of Vanity Fair
(September 2004), 382-89-411-14. (Reese Witherspoon is on the cover.)
Ferguson appears to be yet another member of the neocro-cons who has
lost faith in W. and his courtiers.
