100 CCs of History Channel, Stat!

A student of mine just wrote that

However, unlike Hitler, Stalin did not need a political party and did not need to be elected into position ... Also, unlike Hitler, Stalin did have the need for a secret police.

Sadly, the number of dead bodies underneath Krakow with bullet holes in their skulls from the imaginary guns of Hitler's nonexistent secret police are legions wide and fathoms deep. Of course, the Russians of the age fared much better under the enlightened leadership of Joseph Stalin, who like George Washington believed strongly in an apolitical, Party-less government.

Has anyone else seen the SNL skit "History of the Civil War as Told By High School Drop-Outs?"
