What Happened to Rhetoric?

Another idiot compares Cheney to Goebbels.

I'm afraid that I'm doing something just as bad by appealing to ridicule. However, I think it should be fairly obvious to everyone that comparing Cheney to one of the arhitects of the Holocaust is a non-starter. No matter how much you disagree with the administration and its actions, nothing that has happened in the last four years can compare to the horrors of Nazi Germany. Just because your party is not in power it does not mean that you are oppressed.

By the way, how many opposition parties were there in Nazi Germany? How often could you write a column in Nazi Germany criticizing the regime and not expect to go to jail?

Right.
