  •  It's Not About the Republicans (none)
    He's calling Democrats fascists!
    •  well (4.00)
      not ALL the Democrats, just the so-called moderates, and "companions to fascists" would be a better descripton, since they don't believe in anything enough to actually advocate for it.

      Better to ride on stronger coat tails.

    •  Pétain, not Hitler (4.00)
      No, he's calling them collaborators.
      •  Distinction W/out a Difference (none)
        Historically, yes, Petain was a collaborator.  But in effect, it wasn't much different.  In implication, it's not much different.  And in terms of historical accuracy, you just dwarfed the complexity of any idiotic comparison of Democrats preserving the filibuster with Vichy helping the Nazis.
    •  But Vichy Democrats (none)
      is an amusing phrase.

      But I did misunderstand youe meaning ... and ... for ... that ... I ... apologize.

      (Apologizing is hard work! It's hard work!)

      I snapped on the "Don't use Nazi analogies" thing because I've been attacked for it a few times. I think it's apt and I wish more people would see the signs. (And people who thought I was totally crazy a few months ago are now asking me my opinion on current events.)

      I am tending to support Reid on this, and he is not one of the Vichy Democrats. (Which is a phrase I haven't used lately, anyway.)
