Indicted DeLay: Liberals like Hitler

    Cue Crickets:

    Defend this Conservatives:

    The book, “No Retreat, No Surrender,” has generated a bunch of press, but it’s clear that Jewish Democratic activists haven’t read it. Or else they would have jumped all over this graff…

    “I believe it was Adolf Hitler who first acknowledged that the big lie is more effective than the little lie, because the big lie is so audacious, such an astonishing immorality, that people have a hard time believing anyone would say it if it wasn’t true. You know, the big lie — like the Holocaust never happened or dark-skinned people are less intelligent than light-skinned people. Well, by charging this big lie” — that DeLay violated campaign-finance laws in Texas — “liberals have finally joined the ranks of scoundrels like Hitler.”

    I think people on both sides of the aisle are tired of the "Defend this, liberals" and "Defend this, conservatives" threads.

    But I could be wrong.

    Right, Next time I'll name thread: Defend this ...

    Nothing more stupid than someone comparing democratically elected officials to the worst monster of the 20th century.

    But, why should this be a topic of conversation?

    Well, opponents of the current administration have used the same comparison, accusing the executive branch of fear-mongering in the Nazi tradition.

    I went to a Holocaust museum yesterday with my mom.

    Oddly enough, I kind of don't want to reduce Hitler and Nazism to a cliche or punchline.

    DeLay is an oily shitbag who represents the absolute worst of the American political system. He's one guy I hope I never meet, because I wouldn't be able to resist pissing on his shoes.

    Don't go to it on a day when you're in a great mood ... that's the advice I've gotten from friends who went.
  11. I think the old rule about whoever first compares their opponent to Hitler in the debate automatically loses applies here.

    Somehow, my wife and I stumbled into the Holocaust museum in Paris ... on our honeymoon.

    You want to talk about a Holocaust museum with a difference. In addition to the obviously horrid displays of Nazi sanctioned genocide, there's the added element in Europe of genocide collaboration in the invaded countries, and how those countries live with that legacy. Very depressing stuff.
