Santorum likes Nazi's?

Big surprise I know. Heres an awesome quote from Ricky S on the floor of the Senate yesterday:
Republican Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania countered, "It's the equivalent of Adolf Hitler in 1942." He said Democratic protests over Republican efforts to ensure confirmation votes would be like the Nazi dictator seizing Paris and then saying: "I'm in Paris. How dare you invade me? How dare you bomb my city? It's mine."

Hmmm. This is an interesting analogy; let us examine it. First, he's calling the Democrats, all of them, Hitler. Second, the R's are presumably the Allied Powers. NO! WAIT! Are they the, dare I say it, French? No, maybe "People of Faith"TM are the French. Or are they the bombs?

Moving on, Hitler(D's) is whining about being bombed, and he shouldn't be.

Sooooooooo, Santorum is basically saying that the Dems, despite being in an obvious minority, are fascist dictators forcing the Senate to do everything they say (for example, the Dems were behind all those nasty plots to fuck the environment, poor, elderly, and A-rabs). But thankfully, the Republicans are coming to the Rescuuuuue! And not a moment too soon.

Its stunning that he even considered calling Dems Hitler, but he did. This analogy is rather obvious bullshit. But apart from the shitstorm Santorum will receive from the ADL and PA Jewish groups, its awesome that he made this analogy. It's very apt, just not in the way Ricky intended.

In fact, the Dem's are a wimpy version of the Allied Powers, and the R's are a weird, whining Hitler* (who is also beholden to corporo-churches and industry). The Resistance are us bloggers and the people of Paris are the people of the US. Republitler rolled in with his Panzers of Christ TM, and are trying to complete their dominance of France with this Nuclear Option. And when the Wimpy Allied Dems try to stop them, Republiter is just so offended.

"How dare you try to make it so that I can't do just whatever the hell I want? Don't You know who I am? I am Republiter!"

"Well, sir, you shouldn't, um, do this. We're going to try and, um, stop you," says the Dems, wimpily.

"STOP OPPRESSING ME!!!!!!!!!" cried Republiter,"WHY DO YOU HATE GOD SO MUCH?"

* Let me be clear that I don't think that the GOP is the same as Hitler, but they are doing their damnedest to enter the same dicator-ial league. We all (should) know that Hitler became a dictator through legal means (in the sense that there wasn't a violent revolution, he was given the power by the legislature). If they are successful in stripping the minority party of any ability to represent their electorate, the R's will have brought this country to the beginning of the slippery slope into creating a one-party state.
