          Comparison of either side to Nazis is off-limits, as per Meteor Blades' rules. That doesn't apply elsewhere, and in this case he's not calling anyone a Nazi-- he's comparing particular propaganda tactics to Goebbels' concept of the "big lie". It's apt.

            Meteor Blades though. I was thinking of Rachel who mentioned the Cohen story last Thursday and said it is never ok, not that she speaks for DKos, but her sentiment is widely shared by many in this community. I love Rachel, but I disagree with her on this one.
