...Lisa Schiffren, writing at the Corner, one of the National Review's blogs. While complaining about the alleged media bias in favor of Barack Obama, she mentioned Obama's plan to accept the Democratic presidential nomination in a stadium that seats 75,000, then wrote, "To me, this is evocative of something Leni Riefenstahl might have documented." Leni Riefenstahl, of course, directed "Triumph of the Will," the Nazi propaganda film that documented a party rally at which Adolf Hitler spoke.
Schiffren, a former speechwriter for Dan Quayle (she wrote the speech in which he attacked "Murphy Brown"), has made similar comments before. In a February post, she suggested that Obama's parents may have been communists, given their biracial union.
