At Spinsanity, we wrote a lot about comparisons between one's political opponents and Saddam Hussein, terrorists, the Taliban, etc. These kinds of analogies have become (sadly) commonplace in the post-9/11 era.
The latest examples come from both sides of the aisle. On the left, Rep. John W. Olver recently referred to House Republicans as "jihadists," while conservative pundit Glenn Beck compared Al Gore's fight against global warming to Hitler's attacks on Jews in Nazi Germany.
There's nothing else to say about rhetoric this stupid, but I feel compelled to single it out on principle.
