Springtime for Hitler?

"Senator Byrd's inappropriate remarks comparing his Republican colleagues with Nazis are inexcusable. These comments lessen the credibility of the senator and the decorum of the Senate. He should retract his statement and ask for pardon."

--Sen. Rick Santorum, March 2, 2005

"I mean, imagine, the rule has been in place for 214 years that this is the way we confirm judges. Broken by the other side two years ago, and the audacity of some members to stand up and say, how dare you break this rule. It’s the equivalent of Adolph Hitler in 1942 saying, "I’m in Paris. How dare you invade me. How dare you bomb my city? It’s mine."

--Sen. Rick Santorum, May 19, 2005 on Senate floor

What we will hear from the excuse Rolodex? "Taken out of context?" "The situation is completely different?" "When I was talking about Hitler during the filibuster fight I meant it in a good way? I mean he reportedly liked animals!" "I didn't compare Democrats to Nazis just to Hitler!" Makes you want to pick senators by random from the phone book or maybe swing a dead cat and hit potential replacements. We couldn't do any worse.
