Paul Broun Loses His Mind

What a strange one Rep. Broun (R-10) is.
A Republican congressman from Georgia is calling President-elect Obama a Marxist and warning that he might be planning to form a Gestapo-like security force so he can rule as a dictator.
Marxist? Gestapo? This election seems to have caused a rash of mixed metaphors in some circles. The ridiculousness is far from sublime.

Juche, you American pig dog.

You also start with the presumption that Paul Broun had a mind to begin with.

We need our representatives in washginton working together, not disparaging each other and spreading rumors...

If you agree, please sign this petition to censure Broun for his thoughtless comments.

I do agree with you in principle Josh, but object to the inclusion of "seriously deranged" in the wording of your petition, which is
not allowing my signature anyway.
I believe that he does deserve official censure, but the case against him needs to be made in less emotional terms, lest we be seen as equally ignorant ourselves.

I'm writing directly to Congress, and am also responding to Broun's comments as part of a survey on a site that I found linked to the official government site for Congress.

Aaah, Paul Broun! He fits right in with the rest of the shipwrecked G.O.P. A great cartoon about him and the recriminations flying back and forth on the Reasons To Be Cheerful, Part 3 blog!

I'm calling this ---hole today and giving him a piece of my mind. Just my luck that this guy is my Rep. So I am paying his salary so he can spout off this crap. I didnt hear him complaining when Bush got to tap people's phones and declare US Citizens enemy combatants.

Hell, Obama's not even been sworn in yet.

Wouldn't we be better off making a list and then giving all the people of the list leprosy?

"I'm sorry, Paul, the correct question was 'Who were the Stasi? Stasi.'"

Has anybody read the ajc story today on Broun's apology? (It's here: http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/metro/stories/2008/11/11/broun_regrets_obama_hitler.html?cxntlid=homepage_tab_newstab) Broun says: “I regret putting it that way. I apologize to anyone who has taken offense at that.”

How about an apology to the President-Elect? He just called him, unambiguously, a man with the potential to turn into the most evil, despicable, racist in history.

This whole thing makes me sick.
