Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to war we go


AP:White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, left, and White House Counselor Dan Barlett, ride in a military helicopter wearing helmets and flak jackets for a trip from Baghdad International Airport to U.S. Embassy in the Greenzone

Talking Points Memo says it's "a picture that's a steal at 1,000 words."

Is Snow wearing a Nazi helmet?

UPDATE: Here's the Laurel and Hardy version.

Actually, the flakjacket and helmet were borrowed from Jim Doyle when his news conference ended in Cottage Grove.

Why does he look like Franz Liebkind, the playwright in "The Producers" ?

actually Xoff if you want to totally correct the current American helmet is a direct decendent of the "coal scuttle" helment worn by german troops in WW1 and WW2 so yes he is wearing a "Nazi" helmet does that make you all feel better

When it was introduced the to replace the steel pot helment the American troops called it the "Fritz" helmet.
