Degeneration of the Right

Many bloggers on the right have gone off the deep end condemning a young teacher who noticed huge differences in Bush and a certain mass murderer/dictator, but also some "...eerie similarities to the tone they both use...". I wish the fellow had avoided the incendiary comparison and used a more generic one. He presented the Fox "News" folks and the right wing blogs a way to cloud the issue. By an interesting coincidence Sandra Day O'Connor, this week, made a similar comparison about the right wing of the GOP but did it more gently. According to Justice O'Connor (criticizing the Republican attack on judicial independence) [See DailyKos]
"It takes a lot of degeneration before a country falls into dictatorship, but we should avoid these ends by avoiding these beginnings."
This from Ronald Reagan's choice for the Supreme Court and one of the five who, to their historical shame, put Bush in the White House. This time she got it right.
