On November 7th, Dave Kranz of the Argus Leader said this in his column: "Web sites characterized [Daschle] as the devil." Perhaps in Kranz's world, but I don't remember a single instance of blogs calling Daschle the devil. In contrast to Kranz's mythological devil comparison, note this vile new comparison of John Thune to Hitler and a KKK member offered up by the South Dakota left which SDP has posted. SDP comments:
First, it was Senator Tim Johnson who compared Republicans to the Taliban. Then it was Argus Leader executive editor Randell Beck, known to frequent the local yuppie coffeehouse with Tim Johnson, who said "If Hitler were alive today, he'd have his own blog." In response, one wag noted that "According to Godwin's Law, an Internet discussion-group dictum that long predates blogging, when one side in an argument invokes Hitler, it proves he's lost." Well, today we're seeing abundant proof that the liberals in South Dakota have lost the argument.
SDP also notes how Kranz made a stink about a college student calling Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth a "witch." Let's see if the Argus Leader and Kranz will cover this latest act of absurdity with the same vigor they report--and create--mean things said about Democrats. It should also be noted that 79% of South Dakotans oppose gay, which is what the above mentioned "cartoon" refers to. When someone compares a candidate who opposes gay marriage to Hitler and the KKK, what does that say about how that someone views 79% of South Dakota voters?
