GOP's a little bit Nazi

I guess Byrd (known as "Sheets" to some) didn't get the memo:
GOP Jewish Group Critizes [sic] Byrd's Remarks

A pair of Jewish groups accused Sen. Robert Byrd on Wednesday of making an outrageous and reprehensible comparison between Adolf Hitler's Nazis and a Senate GOP plan to block Democrats from filibustering.

"We, unlike Nazi Germany or Mussolini's Italy, have never stopped being a nation of laws, not of men," Byrd said. "But witness how men with motives and a majority can manipulate law to cruel and unjust ends."

Byrd then quoted historian Alan Bullock, saying Hitler "turned the law inside out and made illegality legal."

I've been sitting at my computer now trying think of an appropriate comment. I got nothin'. When will this foolishness end?
