Le Pen is Channeling Groucho Marx

Thanks to the Feline Theocracy's College of Cardinals, we have this little tidbit. An election poster from France's very own fascist loon, Le Pen.

Translation: "Nationality. Integration. Social advancement. Secularism. The Right, the Left. They destroyed everything."

Who is Le Pen channeling if not Groucho's Rufus T. Firefly from Duck Soup?

"The last man nearly ruined this place,
he didn't know what to do with it.
If you think this country's bad off now,
just wait 'til I get through with it!"

Now there's an election slogan we can all get behind! This is reminiscent of the slogan for the Cthulu for President campaign. "Why vote for the lesser evil?" Why is it that all the really imaginative politicians are in other countries? Or mythos?

In any case, I couldn't find Groucho's song on YouTube, but I did find Chico's trial scene. Enjoy!
