As you know, I subscribe to Birther Central, World Nut Daily. I do this to keep track of the conservative mindset. The results are usually nauseating, as you might expect — thus far I have read not one, not two, but *three* different “origin” stories for President Obama there, of which two of them would make Obama both 100% American and eligible to be President, and a liar — the latter of which doesn’t disqualify you from being President by any means (mushroom clouds if we don’t invade Iraq, guys?). They also have a strange obsession with Obama’s college grades (unless one of those classes was called Being President, why should I care about his college grades?), and spin a myriad of conspiracy theories about all the evil things Obama will do if re-elected — it appears that the only reason he hasn’t banned all guns, seized all major industries and put them under government management, etc. is because he’s just lulling us, he’s just pretending to be an Eisenhower Republican to get enough votes to be re-elected, and if he gets re-elected he’ll do everything the right wing predicted that he’d do if elected the first time and impose a left-wing socialist dictatorship like in Castro’s Cuba.

In short, I haven’t previously noticed any real standards from World Nut Daily. They’ll say anything and everything, though of course their real objection to Obama is that he’s a Democrat (they were just as deranged about Bill Clinton). Until Todd Akin’s nonsense about “Legitimate Rape”. I watched for a couple of days, and silence from World Nut Daily. And then today… editor “Crazy Joe” Farah apparently uttered, Unleash the Coulter! and whadya know, that skank in her stanky black cocktail dress let loose with all the bile in her bitter venomous little mind against Todd Akin.

I guess evil has standards, after all. Either that, or the Republican establishment is scared that if this Akin thing hangs around, someone will remember that Paul “Crazy Eyes” Ryan, Rmoney’s VP pick, has exactly the same beliefs as akin. Hmm, but that would mean that it was just self-interest on the part of Republicans to condemn Akin. And that never happens, right? Right?!

One of the favorite games of the political extremes, most prevalent on the right but also often from the left, is to say that person X is “just like Hitler.” Really? So George W. Bush or Barack Obama are short German dictators? Err… not exactly.

The usual technique used is to find some human attribute shared by many people, most of whom are *not* Hitler, and then say that having that attribute makes the target “just like Hitler.” For example, Hitler loved Mickey Mouse, Britney Spears was a member of the Mickey Mouse Club, why, that makes Britney Spears *just like Hitler!*. Well, her, and about a billion other Mickey Mouse fans worldwide. Which is the problem with the whole “just like Hitler” thing. Hitler possessed a lot of traits. He was short — like George W. Bush, or like Jimmy Carter. He was apparently a vegetarian, like approximately a billion other people on the planet. In other words, focusing on a trait that Hitler shares with a billion other people and saying that this makes someone “just like Hitler” is meaningless. Hell, Hitler was a member of Homo Sapiens, both you and I are members of Homo Sapiens, by that standard *we* are “just like Hitler”!

So clearly you have to focus on attributes that are shared between Hitler and only a few other people if you want to play the “just like Hitler” game, which is where the right wing usually falls down — they usually take someone like Obama, take some trait he shares with a billion other people, and say that makes him “just like Hitler”. Obama wants national healthcare! Hitler had national healthcare! (As does every other Western nation). That makes Obama “just like Hitler”! Well, and makes every *other* Western leader for the past 80 years other than U.S. Presidents “just like Hitler” too, which fails the “only a few people” test”.

If, on the other hand, you point out that Hitler invaded Poland on a bogus premise of a Polish threat to Germany, and Bush II invaded Iraq on a bogus premise of an Iraqi threat to Germany… there aren’t all that many leaders over the past 100 years that have invaded other nations based on a lie. So in that respect, Bush II really *was* just like Hitler. But now you get to the point where the whole game of “Just Like Hitler” shows itself to be utterly useless: In most other ways, Bush II was *not* “Just Like Hitler”. For example, Bush II had/has no genocidal urgings, and does not appear to himself be a outright racist. Indeed, one of the few things I genuinely respected about Bush II was when he emphatically made the point, repeatedly, that Muslim-Americans were *Americans* and should not be discriminated against.

The reality, then, is that the game of “Just Like Hitler” simply isn’t useful. It is useful to point out when our opponents use tactics commonly associated with the Nazis, such as the Big Lie tactic, or have beliefs commonly associated with the Nazis, such as a belief that white people are superior to brown people or that gays and ethnic minorities should be exterminated. But that doesn’t make them “just like Hitler” — it just makes them evil sons of bitches, yo.

At CPAC, Our Lady of the Skanky Little Black Cocktail Dress (sometimes referred to as “Man Coulter”) says that the U.S. should start throwing journalists in jail. Just like in those havens of freedom North Korea, China, and Saudi Arabia, I suppose.

Note that CPAC didn’t boo OLOTSLBCD, they *cheered* her. If the Republicans want to stop being compared to Nazis, they need to quit proposing Nazi policies, yo. Just sayin’.

Ann Coulter today opened his (her?) gaping maw and ejaculated that Obama was not, in fact, a Muslim. Rather, he was something worse, something so horrifying that ordinary Americans should run screaming in horror at the very sight of the man. Yes, Obama may be… maybe… AN ATHEIST!

The horror! Oh the horror! Why, everybody knows that atheists are so horrible and evil that, like, they burn people at the stake or cut off their heads or other stuff like that! And everybody knows that atheists are such despicable people that they regularly bomb abortion clinics, blow up truck bombs outside of federal buildings, and crash planes into buildings. Surely atheist clergy have been regularly arrested for fucking little kids up every orifice, stealing money from their congregations, and shouting “God damn America!” at the top of their lungs from the pulpit, right? Right?!

Bruce Barclay, the Republican commissioner of Cumberland County, PA was discovered with hundreds of videotapes of gay sex acts apparently taken without the consent of the other party. The videotapes did, however, clear him of an allegation that he’d raped a 20 year old male intern. The videotape showed him and the intern having quite consensual gay sex, no rape involved.

I swear, we have enough of these gay Republicans going around ‘now to make a Republicans Gone Wild tape, complete with gay orgies and nude wrestling matches (in a manly way, of course). Hypocrisy, thy name is Republican…

Oh dear God. I need eyewash after Googling “elephant penis size” and “donkey penis length”. Ick!

Oh, being raped by a donkey is probably preferable to being raped by an elephant. For one thing, being mounted by an elephant, even without penetration, would tend to make either a hairless monkey or a penguin rather… flat.

I leave it to you to apply this lesson to the question of who to vote for in November.
