  •  You, sir, are what we call a hack. (0+ / 0-)

    Democrats of course do exactly the same thing.  Maybe not with Hitler, but I'm sure you can find Democrats phrasing an innocent sentiment in a way that lends itself to negative framing and getting attacked by Republicans for it.  And he pretty clearly wasn't praising Hitler - that's just a very ungenerous reading of what he was saying.

    As to your third point - if you're going to admit your intellectual dishonestly openly, why should anyone take what you have to say seriously?

    While I agree that being too decorous about "rules" can be detrimental in politics, if one doesn't maintain at least minimal standards of intellectual honesty and integrity one is just a hack.  Why should anyone care what a hack has to say?
