The Mother Of All Godwins

If we were to harness the raw power of Tom DeLay's ego, we could power the entire continental United States for a decade:

“I believe it was Adolf Hitler who first acknowledged that the big lie is more effective than the little lie, because the big lie is so audacious, such an astonishing immorality, that people have a hard time believing anyone would say it if it wasn’t true. You know, the big lie — like the Holocaust never happened or dark-skinned people are less intelligent than light-skinned people. Well, by charging this big lie” — that DeLay violated campaign-finance laws in Texas — “liberals have finally joined the ranks of scoundrels like Hitler.”

Kids, like they say on Sesame Street, one of these things is not like the other:

-Racism

-The Holocaust

-The idea that Tom Delay-- who has gone on record to state that his idyllic government is one that is heavily privatized for the benefit of the rich-- took a bit too much from private entities.

I'll let you guess which one. (Hint: it's the last one.)

Comments:
I might be wrong, but wasn't it Goebbels, not Hitler, who said that anyway?
 
Apparently Hitler first devised the idea, but it was Goebbels who popularized it.

But I think it's no "big lie" that Tom DeLay is a massive douchebag.
