Missed it by *that* much.

You would think I'd remember my own cleverness better, but when Lileks properly laid claim to the currently-popular "Everyone will be Hitler for fifteen minutes" line, I completely forgot my own bitter take on that line.

A few years back, I'd said to the moderate Democrats I knew that they and their moonbat allies ought to be careful about labeling people as "Nazis" merely because they disagreed with their politics. After all, you call somebody a Nazi long enough, he might decide to try on the brown shirt, polish up the boots, and start kicking some ass. Kind of a corollary to the "might as well be hung for a sheep as a lamb" line of thinking, y'know?

I'm happy to see that nobody in the GOP has gone that far, despite last year's thuggery by AFL-CIO goons. The last thing I want is to spend my declining years living through America's version of the "dirty wars" in Latin America.
