A Washington, D.C. middle school teacher is under scrutiny for using a Venn diagram to compare George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler as part of a homework assignment.

In the assignment, McKinley Middle School students were asked to compare and contrast the “two men of power who abused their power in various ways.”

Hitler-George W. Bush Venn Diagram

After the diagram was posted to Twitter, D.C. Public Schools released a statement acknowledging the diagram and condemning the teacher for it:

"This week, a DCPS teacher created a worksheet which asked students to compare and contrast President George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler, after reading two texts."

"No DCPS curriculum materials suggest in any way that teachers should compare the texts in this manner or compare Hitler to any other individual."

"The teacher deeply regrets this mistake, and any suggestion to malign the office of the presidency or make any comparison in this egregious way."

Michael Moore doesn't mince words, and that includes when talking about President Barack Obama, a man you'd think he would mostly see eye-to-eye with.

Not so much. Asked by The Hollywood Reporter about Obama's claim to have saved Detroit, the Michigan native and liberal filmmaker bristled.

Michael Moore, Barack Obama

"I wrote Obama a letter and I said, 'Dear President Obama, God Bless you, but you did not save Detroit. You saved General Motors. You saved Chrysler.'"

"Detroit at this point would stand a better chance," the 60-year-old Moore said, "if it were an Iraqi or Syrian city in term of getting some sort of help."

"And I think Obama sadly has done many, many good things, but he's also been a huge disappointment," Moore added, not holding back on the POTUS.

"I really wish somebody would say to him - maybe I'll say to him in case he's watching, you do read The Hollywood Reporter Mr. President, don't you?"

"When the history is written of this era this is how you'll be remembered: he was the first black president. OK, not a bad accomplishment, but that's it."

Many around the country are not thrilled with Barack Obama these days.

The President's approval rating has been hovering around 40% for weeks now.

But you may be surprised to discover who the Obama’s biggest critic is these days. Sarah Palin? Nope. This kid!

In an awesomely hilarious photo posted by the White House's own Flickr account, the President is meeting with a departing Secret Service agent as the man's son “dives into a couch,” as described by the administration itself.

Seriously, this toddler would rather be ANYwhere except the Oval Office, like watching a rocket launch...

Bored in the Oval Office

American journalist Steven Sotloff has been executed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the group claims in a purported video released Tuesday.

Sotloff, who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, had last been seen near Turkey-Syria border in August 2013, when he vanished without a trace.

He then appeared a video released online last month by the Islamic State group that showed the beheading of fellow American journalist James Foley.

Dressed in an orange jumpsuit against the backdrop of an arid Syrian landscape, Sotloff was threatened in that video by the masked man who killed Foley.

The executioner called out U.S. President Barack Obama personally that unless the U.S. stopped air strikes on ISIS, Sotloff and more Americans would die.

Yup, we're saying it: Very well played, Sarah Palin!

The former Vice Presidential candidate is the latest celebrity to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, although she initially says in the following footage that she’s “too old” for this “ice bucket water dump thing” and will instead write a check to the cause while sipping from some Diet Dr. Pepper.

Fair enough, right?

But then, just as Palin kicks back and relaxes, someone off camera douses her with a bucket of very cold water.

Her screams may haunt our nightmares forever, but props must be given to Palin in this case. And you'll never believe who she then challenged next!

Watch all the way through the find out:

In other creative Ice Bucket Challenge videos, Olivia Wilde used breast milk and Chris Pratt drank vodka.

Former Hercules star Kevin Sorbo unleashed a Herculean rant on Facebook about the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, following the death of Michael Brown.

"Ferguson riots have very little to do with the shooting of the young man," Kevin begins, positing, "It is an excuse to be the losers these animals truly are."

Certainly cuts to the chase.

The 55-year-old actor and oustpoken conservative, said the Ferguson unrest signifies "a tipping point to frustration built up over years of not trying."

Instead of working to improve their lot in life, Sorbo believes, the people protesting in the city are "blaming everyone else, The Man, for their failures."

Then he adds this barb:

"Hopefully this is a reminder to African Americans (I always thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that the President [they] voted in has only made things worse for them, not better."

Sorbo then shared on his Facebook page an article from the Jewish World Review about Ferguson, entitled, "Media Clueless About the Inner City."

This piece also opines that the death of Michael Brown is just the tip of the iceberg here, but lays the blame at the feet of the media as well as protestors.

"Want the riots to end in Ferguson?" asks the author. "Ban the media who are nothing more than agitators promoting the circus environment and inciting outsiders to join in the frenzy."

"Don´t forget the media putting out the cop's name, photo and home information. I hear he is forced to leave the community by this - victimized a second time!"

"The media promotes chaos to boost pathetic ratings. We should shut them all off and watch clips on the internet only when republished under fair use by a conservative media watchdog."

What do you think of Sorbo's comments - and those of the article whose views he clearly shares - on the events playing out in Ferguson? Tell us below:

Who knew John McCain could get on the dance floor and bust a move?

Or at least that the man can do the robot like it's going out of style?

Now you do, and it's everything you thought it could be ...

He took the stage at the Apollo in the Hamptons party at Ron Perelman's East Hampton estate Saturday for his impressive robot alongside Jamie Foxx.

"It's always the ones you don't expect," Foxx said of the 77-year-old McCain to the N.Y. Post after the event. "Republicans love to dance in the Hamptons!"

The Republican U.S. Senator from Arizona and two-time presidential candidate followed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in showing off his killer moves.

McCain tweeted a photo of his performance with the caption, "Had a good time this weekend with @iamjamiefoxx, supporting a worthy cause @apollotheater."

Texas Gov. Rick Perry was defiant Tuesday as he was booked on abuse of power charges, showing no sign of worry, angst or despair in his mug shot.

In fact, the man looks downright dashing in his booking photo:

Rick Perry Mug Shot

Rick Perry was indicted Friday. Other than him threatening to "fight this injustice with every fiber of my being," you would never know such a thing occurred.

The 64-year-old flashed a thin, confident grin beneath his always-perfect hair, then headed to a local Austin eatery for ice cream, which he Tweeted about.

The Republican, who is mulling a second presidential run in 2016, was indicted for carrying out a threat to veto funding for state public corruption prosecutors.

The longest-serving governor in Texas history is accused of coercion and official oppression for publicly promising to veto $7.5 million for the public integrity unit.

Perry threatened the veto if the county's Democratic district attorney, Rosemary Lehmberg, stayed in office after a DUI conviction, then made good on it.

Michelle Duggar has never been shy about expressing her conservative political beliefs, but her recent opposition to an Arkansas law might surprise even her most far-right fans.

The TLC reality star recorded a robocall message for the citizens of Fayetteville, Ark., encouraging them to vote against an anti-discrimination law.

The legislation is designed to outlaw prejudice against transgender individuals with regard to employment, housing, and use of public facilities.

Duggar not only wants to keep current segregation policies in place, she reveals in her call that she refuses to recognize transgender people by their proper gender.

In fact, she informs callers that the new law would allow "men - yes I said men to use women's and girls' restrooms, locker rooms, [and] showers."

You can read the full text of Duggar's message below:

A grand jury indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Friday for abusing the powers of his office, but the longest-serving governor in state history denies any wrongdoing.

Perry allegedly abused the powers of the governor's office by carrying out a threat to veto funding for state prosecutors investigating public corruption.

He promised publicly to nix $7.5 million in funding over two years for the public integrity unit run by the office of Travis County D.A. Rosemary Lehmberg.

This threat took place after Lehmberg, a Democrat, was convicted of drunken driving last year, but refused Perry's calls to resign from her position.

No one disputes that Perry is allowed to veto measures approved by the Legislature, as he did in following through on his promise to axe the funds.

By using public pressure to boast that he would do so as a means of trying to Lehmberg to quit, however, the grand jury felt he broke the law.
