Shawn Klein recently wrote an interesting piece about "The Evil Competition: Nazis and Communists"

Somehow, in my mind, that turned into a reality show:

I dreamed the Mr. Evil Competition

Was held in Hades. Hitler won again.

He seems to have a lock on the position.

Stalin complained. "Most evil of all men?

I spit upon you. I killed many more,

Yes, millions more than you. Why do I fail

To win the votes for evil that you score?

My gore-bespattered record makes yours pale."

Then Hitler replied: "It isn't just the count,

It turns out people hate the Master Race

Idea, and that runs up my vote amount.

I'm sorry, Joe, but you won't fall from grace

Completely until socialism's seen

As not just mistaken, but murderous and mean."

John; It is centrally an interesting question about why Hitler wins the "Evil" sweepstakes. I think that socialism is still is thought of as a noble ideal in many circles.

Yes, I too think that's the key.

"The Real Dr. Evil"

I dreamed John Enright's Competition

Was only the Semifinal.

Immanuel Kant snuck up on both Hitler and Stalin

While they were Glaring at Each Other

Nose to Nose.

Manny sprayed them with a Blinding Solution.

No. I mean Really . . . a *Blinding* Solution.

Unable to see they wandered around the Ring

Moaning "Where is Reality? How do I know it?"

Then Evil little Manny the K sprayed them with

Another Solution

Which Caused their Bodies to Slowly Melt Away

Into a Foggy Unreality.

As did the Entire Stadium

And the World Outside.

And Pretty Soon Manny Himself.

"I Win!" Chuckled Kant Feebly

As His Voice Faded Into

Non-Existence.

Since Kant has been entered in the competition, he deserves his own rhyme:

A man named Immanuel Kant

Invented a realm he could haunt.

"My notations noumenal

Shall end by doomin' all!"

This was his last, fading taunt.
