Jeet Heer attributes to Theodor Adorno a couple of interesting thoughts about fascist leaders. First, fascist leaders "are often clownish, deliberately so." Second, "The fascist leader often plays the clown because that supports his message: that the system is a joke, so deserves derision." I suppose you could say that fascist leaders play on the weaknesses of democracy.
