Brilliant PR (to me) would be boasting and then backing it up. His clearly plagiarized alter-ego isn't fresh, funny, or even entertaining. It probably appeals to the same people it did when it was used 30 years ago in rasslin' but I simply don't buy it.
What I find funny, is how SO MANY people will use Hitler to legitimize an argument on the internet. This isn't a shot against you but it's tired as well. Too many people will find themselves saying, "Yeah, well Hitler was popular in Germany too and look what happened there!" Come on, how good is Hitler's PR REALLY? He's dead, demonized, and the country he loved so much spent decades in ruin and oppression. Not what I would call "brilliant" PR.
Did you really use Godwin's Law against Chael?
Chael is a brilliant ORATOR.
Will you settle with that?
