Duh: Senator Regrets Making Hitler Comment
Don't people usually regret making Hitler comments? He's a rather polarizing, hot-button figure.
"Referencing Hitler was meant to dramatize the principle of an argument, not to characterize my Democratic colleagues," Santorum, the No. 3 Republican in the GOP leadership in the Senate, said of his remarks Thursday.
Seriously, dude. Have you never heard of Godwin's Law?
"This states that if one participant in a discussion calls another a Nazi or compares them to Hitler, the thread has degenerated into personal abuse and there is no possibility of further rational discussion, the thread is therefore dead and no one should post any more messages in it. If anyone ignores this and does continue posting, they should not be replied to."
