What a Team

Word from Captain Ed tonight that the “conscience of the Senate”, Senator Robert Byrd, has compared Republicans to Nazis. The former clansman, (he must love that label) didn’t just say this in passing to an aide, or to a fellow congressman, or even slip it to a member of the press. No. Byrd made this accusation right from the Senate floor.

So, for those keeping count — we now know that Howard Dean thinks Republicans are “evil”, and Robert Byrd believes that Republicans are reincarnated Nazi jackbooted thugs.

The party of tolerance, indeed.

UPDATE: A Jewish group criticizes Byrd’s comments. So far, no word outta Byrd.

  1. He’s just pissed that the Nazis has prettier uniforms than the KKK and is obsessing…methinks he should just concentrate on doing what he does best-being the pork king of the U.S., and maybe getting a better tailor for “his boys in the hood” for when they work the nightshift.

  2. Sen. Byrd apparently suffers from Biden Syndrome, which causes one person to appropriate the words of another without attributing them to the source.

    Byrd: “Hitler’s originality lay in his realization that effective revolutions, in modern conditions, are carried out with, and not against, the power of the State: the correct order of events was first to secure access to that power and then begin his revolution. Hitler never abandoned the cloak of legality; he recognized the enormous psychological value of having the law on his side. Instead, he turned the law inside out and made illegality legal.”
