Adolph Hitler didn't smoke, was a vegiterian,and was not a womanizer.
He was perfect in the politically correct world.
Died at 55 and killed millions.
The politically incorrect world
Winston Churchill smoked womanized and drank a bottle of scotch a day.
Lived till 90 and saved Democracy.
Let people live their lives being free.
