Godwin's Law Violation Award Nominee - Iowa Edition

Jan 3rd, 2011

Well, it finally happened. I should have know it would. MSNBC reports:

"With a sense of history on the biggest political day -- to date -- of the 2012 cycle, Texas Gov. Rick Perry today compared the GOP's quest to defeat President Barack Obama to one of the deadliest battles of the D-Day landings in Normandy in 1944.

"This election is about stopping a president of the United States and his administration that is abusing the Constitution of this country, that is putting America on a track to bankruptcy," Perry told a hotel ballroom packed with more than 200 volunteers.

"It is a powerful moment in Americans' history, and you are on the front lines," he added. "This is Concord. This is Omaha Beach. This is going up the hill realizing that the battle is worth winning."

And just who were we fighting on Omaha Beach? Sure, you can argue that it's simply a poor metaphor. You could also argue that Perry is too stupid to actually know what he is saying. But that would be bullshit.
