S.C. Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian, never a loss for a quick quip, tossed a few stinging one-liners at the Wednesday delegation breakfast.
On Gov. Nikki Haley participating in daily news briefings in a basement studio at the NASCAR Hall of Fame: “She was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun.”
Yes, because the democratically elected Indian-American Republican governor of a US state is so very comparable to the mistress of a genocidal dictator and who joined him in suicide in that bunker.
The Nazi comparisons are flying fast from the Democrats at their convention. California Democrat Party chairman John Burton compared Paul Ryan to Goebbels, while a Kansas delegate compared him to Hitler, himself.
It’s nothing new for high-ranking Democrats to liken their opposition to an exterminationist German fascist party, though; Nancy Pelosi, while Speaker of the House, claimed Americans protesting as part of the Tea Party movement were brandishing swastikas at town hall meetings.
Must be that “elevated political discourse” they keep talking about.
UPDATE: PJM’s Bryan Preston says Harpootlian should do the decent thing and resign.
