Jeff Jacoby is like Hitler…

…After all, both were born in the 20th Century.

I’m just trying to get into next year’s round up of liberal hate speech. Man, he has a thin skin!

  1. Without wishing to be pedantic, Hitler was born on 20th April, 1889 – which means he was born in the Nineteenth Century.

  2. Excellent! Now we know that Jeff Jacoby is different from Hitler at least in having been born in a different century.

    I think this additional comment increase the chances of my making it onto his 2004 list. I’m excited!

    (And a big D’oh to me. D’oh!)

  3. Dave, This is a cool site. Thanks.

  4. Very funny to point out the fact on Hitler . . . I was gonna comment in the same thing but it looks like ya beat me to the punch. Anyhow – a slight misnomer when compared to the overall meaning behind the analogy!

  5. I think Godwin’s law applies. A comparison to Hitler automatically loses the argument.

  6. PS: When I said this was a cool site, of course I also meant this site, but I really meant the link– Thanks again.

  7. Godwins law? Not sure I am familiar with it . . . any chance that you are still watching this post it would be great for ya to post with some additional info.

  8. Godwin’s Law: “As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.” But note: “However there is also a widely- recognized codicil that any intentional triggering of Godwin’s Law in order to invoke its thread-ending effects will be unsuccessful. ”

  9. I think hitler was rather unique :)

  10. That’s a load. There are a lot of people who were just like Hitler. Some just acted on a smaller or larger scale. i.e. Benito Mussolini smaller, Joseph Stalin far large.
