Good Questions

Ann Althouse looks at Joshua Green's Why is This GOP House Candidate Dressed as a Nazi? and asks:

How evil is it for a candidate to play the role of a Nazi in war reenactments? How evil is it for a journalist to write about that and bury — in the 13th paragraph — the news that the same man — Rich Iott — has also done reenactment as a Civil War Union infantryman, a World War I doughboy and a World War II American infantryman and paratrooper?

More at Witch! Whore! ...Nazi!

FWIW, a few years ago, at an event in Iowa, I met some people who reenact a Soviet unit in the "Great Patriotic War." It never occurred to me to think about their politics in 21st century America.
