Americans for Godwin's Law

Posted by : Rev. Ouabache | Saturday, August 22, 2009 | Published in

Ladies and gentlemen, I believe that it is time for us to enact Godwin's Law at the federal level. For too long political pundits and debaters have gone the easy way out by comparing and every politician and policy change to the evil evil Nazi regime of the 1930's and 40's. Reductio ad Hitlerum is always the simpleton's way out. Comparing someone to the Third Reich has never added anything to the conversation. That is why I am proposing that Congress pass a law forbidding people to compare anything to the Nazis unless it involves killing millions of Jews, skinheads, or really shiny boots. Any time a bad analogy invokes the ghost of Der Fuhrer that person automatically loses 20 points and is not allowed to talk about politics for 5 years. No exceptions. I am hoping that Rep. Barney Frank will be my first sponsor:
