"Only 12 days after lawmakers from both sides of the aisle called for 'civility' and a 'new tone' in response to the shooting in Tucson, Arizona that severely injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and killed six others, Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen has resorted back to using Nazi comparisons to describe his political opponents," reports The Daily Caller's Chris Moody.
Cohen decided to break out the tired Nazi comparison not because Republicans have begun gassing hundreds of thousands of innocent people, or because they invaded the Rhineland, but because House Republicans called Obamacare exactly what it is.
"They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels," Cohen said yesterday. "You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually, people believe it. Like blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing, blood libel. That’s the same kind of thing."
What I want to know: Is Cohen's use of the term "blood libel" the "same kind of thing" as Palin's use of the term "blood libel"? If so, is he going to be dragged through the mud for it?
