It took longer than I expected for somebody to hit Sarah Palin with a Nazi comparison, but it finally happened. Frankly I’m a little disappointed that it took so long. The left is getting lazy — but fighting make-believe Nazis takes a lot out of you.
Perpetual idiot with the dreadlocked synapses Whoopi Goldberg is one of the first to go Nazi hunting in a column about Palin:
This is a very dangerous woman, because I believe for her intents and purposes, sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s OK if everybody lives a certain way, that is to say, the way God ordained men and women to be. Well, already sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s breaking that because sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the daddy. SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to run the country and the husband is going to take care of the kids. I just found the whole thing sad and very musty and very much like a Bund rally, but maybe that was just me.
By the way, I found out that Whoopi edits her own columns. Here’s a sentence from earlier in the column:
She was part of a campaign to succeed Alaska from the United States of America.
And now Palin wants the rest of the country to succeed. How awful!
My personal favorite:
I was saddened by this woman because I think she has contempt for people who donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe as she believes…
If only Palin could be as tolerant as Whoopi Goldberg — who heard a few thousand people cheering challenges to the experience of Obama, pitbull-with-lipstick jokes and calls for energy independence and immediately compared it to a Nazi rally.
Keep talking, Whoopi. Our side needs you.
