Unbelievable!

-- by Dave Johnson

Remember when MoveOn had a contest to make an ad, and some guy made one comparing Bush's actions to Hitler's? Remember the firestorm? You couldn't turn on the TV or read a newspaper or listen to the radio without hearing about how TERRIBLE MoveOn is. (Even though it was just some guy...)

Well I'm going to really surprise you. It's OK if you are a Republican (IOKIYAR). Go read GOP senator compares Democrats to Hitler,

...AND THE AUDACITY OF SOME MEMBERS TO STAND UP AND SAY, HOW DARE YOU BREAK THIS RULE. IT'S THE EQUIVALENT OF ADOLF HITLER IN 1942 "I'M IN PARIS. HOW DARE YOU INVADE ME. HOW DARE YOU BOMB MY CITY? IT'S MINE." THIS IS NO MORE THE RULE OF THE SENATE THAN IT WAS THE RULE OF THE SENATE BEFORE NOT TO FILIBUSTER. IT WAS AN UNDERSTANDING AND AGREEMENT, AND IT HAS BEEN ABUSED. IN A SENSE, WHAT WE SEE HERE ON THE FLOOR OF THE UNITED STATES.
Start calling radio stations, newspapers... Jeeze, I don't know what to start doing. Do something.
