GOP Congressman: BP Escrow Fund Is Just Like Hitler

Following up on James Joyner’s post earlier this week about the odd correlation of the BP escrow fund and Naziism, we know have Texas Congressman Louis Gohmert saying this:

I hereby request a moratorium on any political argument that involves invoking Nazis, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, or Soviet Communism.

    I’m afraid your moratorium would silence the tiny minds and make them more difficult to identify.

    You know who else put a moratorium on political arguments? Hitler!

    What is it with antediluvian Texas Republicans? They must have a death wish

    It’s easier now to list the few remaining things that aren’t just like Hitler.

  5. Michael Reynolds says:

    That stale-ass burger I had yesterday? Just like Hitler.

  6. Steve Plunk says:

    What about Goebbels or HImmler? Congressmen should know better than most to leave that weak a$$ sh*t out of the argument. If that’s all you got then you got nothing. Learn how to orate responsibly.

    I heard Hitler wore women’s underwear… do you think that’s why Obama likes girly-pants?

  8. An Interested Party says:

    Perhaps he likes such pants because he knows that impotent fools like you will make fun of him for it…

    Sure. He WANTS people to make fun of him. No, methinks not. His head explodes and he throws a hissy fit when he perceives that someone is dissing him. Not a real strong character when it comes to taking criticism.

    You should really check out a mirror, sweetie, as you are the one who throws hissy fits and whose head explodes everytime you talk about him…go ahead and say it, he’s your president…I know you can if you really try hard enough…

  11. Juneau: says:

    go ahead and say it, he’s your president…

    Yes, he’s my president. Duly elected and there for two more years. But – he sucks. Big time. In almost every way. And he is doing bad, bad things with, in, and for, our country. I wish that he wasn’t, but he is. He is a disaster. He is immature, not ready, can’t administer, and has no courage to do anything other than try to enact some grand idealistic vision for this country that has much more to do with the concepts of social revolution, central government control and socialism, than freedom and individualism.

    He could be purple and a hermaphrodite. If he wasn’t a pompous, narcissistic fool with a messianic complex – I could probably still find something to grudgingly admire. But, unfortunately, he is.

    Oh my, double posting…you really must have wanted to get your point across…how much more will your head explode when he wins a second term…

  14. Juneau: says:

    No, the browser hung and someone else kicked the button the second time. A second term for this man could only be stolen, not earned. Maybe you’re right. Perhaps he can mysteriously come up with another cycle of record-breaking donations from strangely unverifiable sources, along with boxes of votes from fictional characters. After all, Chicago politics is nothing if not inventive.

  15. Michael Reynolds says:

    Oh, my God. I see it now!

    Character assassination. . .the Big Lie . . . Hatred of “the other” . . . and I’m pretty sure he’s the guy who served me that stale-ass hamburger at the Burger King drive-thru. It’s clear now: Juneau is Hitler!
