On the pope
For those worried about the fact that Pope Benedict XVI is a 78yr old German, here's the story:

At 18 at the end of WWII, the law made it compulsory to be a member of the "Hitler Youth". When forced to man an anti-aircraft battery, Ratzinger defected (for which he could have been shot), and was in an American POW camp for about a month.

As says DailyKos:
Call him conservative, call him reactionary, call him old, call him surly, call him the wrong choice. Just don't call him a Nazi.
