Friday food for thought

Well done. The irony of what Rangel said yesterday isn’t that Democrats demonize Bush too, it’s that they demonize him in ways much worse than Chavez did. You can laugh at being called “the devil,” especially if the guy saying it is a fat dictator from a banana republic. You can’t laugh at being compared to Bull Connor. The two posters in Shelton’s cartoon do a nice job of bringing that contrast out. The one on the left’s sort of funny and “quaint,” the one on the right … isn’t.

Charles is following the fallout at Kos. Meanwhile, if Bush equals Hitler, who does Ahmadinejad equal? Sticky Notes knows. Isn’t Shumway a “Zionist” name?
