"In an election year, too many candidates still like to divide the American electorate, and they do that in the demagogic way of pitting the rich against everyone else. I am sure voters will get their fill of statistics claiming that the Bush tax cut hands out 40 percent of the benefit to hte top 1 percent of the taxpayers. This is not merely misleading, it is outright false. Some folks must be under the impression that as long as something is repeated often enough, it will become true. That was how Adolf Hitler got to the top."

Senator Charles Grassley (R-never heard of Godwin's Law).

In any case, I remember the spittle flying through my screen when the German Foreign Minister made a similar comparison.
