    But recall that Weimar fell when the extreme right and the extreme left joined forces in the Reichstag, this because they discovered commonalities.

    And then read some of the Obama-ate-my-grandma stuff here and on other leftie blogs. The difference between that and some of the more hallucinatory stuff on Free Republic is one of degree, not of kind.

    America has much stronger democratic traditions than did interwar Germany, so the comparison is by no means perfect, but as a student of both, I find our trendlines worrisome.

    Fuck me, it's a leprechaun.
