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.
