Now he’s basically calling Democrats the electoral descendants of Hitler, Himmler et al.
The best that state GOP chairman Tim Berry could say when told of Mourdock’s comments, according to AP, was that comparisons to Nazis are generally inappropriate.
Well, yes, they are.
They’re also stupid.
To their credit, the responses of many Republican delegates to Mr. Mourdock’s comments on Saturday were highly repulsive.
“Mourdock likens my country to Nazi Germany. Not my country, Mr. Mourdock! So shameful the day after D-Day anniv. GO AWAY!” Mike Murphy, a Marion County Republican delegate and former local chairman, wrote in a tweet.
On the dangers of a growing public debt, there is much on which we and Mr. Mourdock are in agreement; on how to go about alleviating those dangers, we and Mr. Mourdock are far apart.
But that’s the way it is in a democracy, where disagreement doesn’t just exist but is openly expressed — and even encouraged.
And we’re free, all of us, to say extremely stupid, asinine things, as Mr. Mourdock proved Saturday.
