Godwin's Law in politics

"You don't go see Joseph Goebbels' films to see the truth about Nazi Germany. You don't go see Al Gore's films to see the truth about global warming."

-Sterling Burnett, DaySide, Fox News

"Gore believed in global warming almost as much as Hitler believed there was something wrong with the Jews."

-Bill Gray, quoted in The Washington Post Magazine

No matter where you fall politically, I recommend taking a look at Gore's flick if you haven't already seen him give the Keynote presentation at drewuniversity or elsewhere. Then go read up on it, check out some of the rebuttals and alternate theories, make up your own mind, and act accordingly. But c'mon, why bring Nazis into it? At least Gore can laugh at ManBearPig.

Feeling: disappointed disappointed

I believe I read a quote on lj somewhere that pertained to stupid lj drama but equally pertains to stupid political drama. Basically, the moment you equate someone to a Nazi, you automatically lose all credibility.

Herr Fox refers to Godwin's Law, which is as old as usenet, I believe. It's a well-defined internet truism, and insofar as I've experienced, generally accurate.
