Catalunya TV is reporting that Pasqual Maragall, jerk, Catalan Socialist leader, and ex-mayor of Barcelona, has spouted off again. This time he compared Prime Minister José María Aznar with Hermann Goering. Now, that seems a bit excessive to us, but, you know, comparing Goering and Maragall doesn't seem at all unreasonable. Let's try it.
