Will The White House be

Will The White House be the Kremlin of the 21st Century?

Princeton academic Arno Mayer thinks so. Sorry, no time to translate from the French. Any readers have the original English (I can't track it down on Google)? If so please E-mail to me and I will post.

Early hint, however, as to how Mayer goes about making this wacky comparison. Like Jacques and Gerard--he appears a bit put off that the Vilnius Group and others in Central and Eastern Europe prefer Dubya's Iraq stance to Joshka Fischer's. From here it's an easy leap that we are exerting Kremlin-style totalitarian control over the region, right? Well, if your tenured at Princeton it is.
