He's Wearing a German Helmet!

Two events that both happened the same day:

- Senator-turned-Chicago Mayoral candidate Carol Mosely Braun quotes the Franz Liebkind character in "The Producers" in calling opponent Rahm Emanuel "kind and gentle," which is what Franz said about Hitler. This episode mostly drew notice because someone with the last name "Braun" was referencing Hitler.

- Kenneth Mars, the actor who played Franz in the original "Producers" movie, died.
