Though I'm no fan of the man it's ironic that a German magazine, of all nationalities, describe him as a colorless politician.

/We remember the last colorful politician you had, Der Spiegel.
//And so do you.

jaytkay: Abe Vigoda's father helped finance the Third Reich?

Not likely. But he was active in Rome about the same time...

mikemoto: This is utter bullshiat

From your link:

"The involvement of Prescott [Bush] Sr. and other members of the American business aristocracy with Nazi-era industry was shameful, and in some instances illegal-and they knew it. Like so many Americans who made deals with fascist interests or lent political support to them during the 30′s, those businessmen got off rather easily after the war. Most of them, including Bush, were permitted to keep the money they had made with the Germans."

Prescott Bush was fined by the US government under the "Trading With the Enemy Act". Your link is Joe Conason's attempt to absolve GWB Jr of his grandfather's sins.

And it confirms his grandfather's profiteering as a Nazi collaborator.

Nazi collaborator. How's that for a heartwarming family story about grandpa?

Matthew Keene: I wonder when Francisco Franco is going to weigh in on this?

Is he still dead? I haven't seen an update recently. He might have improved.
