Yeah, I called this one.....

Posted here at Right, Wing Nut! on August 11th, shortly after Paul Ryan was selected to be Mitt Romney's running mate:

Meet America's Newest Hitler: Paul Ryan

Maybe I overestimated the Democrat's malice a wee bit.  But only a bit:

Dem Chair Compares Paul Ryan to Goebbels

The SF Gate blog reports that California’s Democratic Party Chair John Burton likened Ryan to Joseph Goebbels at a breakfast for the Democratic National convention...Not only did Burton compare Ryan to the Nazi leader, he shrugged it off and refused to back down when confronted about his language — quipping that Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown won an election after comparing his opponent, Meg Whitman, to Goebbels in 2010...

Nice!  Burton even provided a picture of Paul Ryan to buttress his case:

Oh, sorry, that is Herr Goebbels! (and I snatched the pic from The Other McCain).  But hey - if it helps the Democrats win an election they deserve to lose, why not?

Update:  Apparently I spoke too soon:

Top Kansas Democrat Likens Paul Ryan to Hitler

Pat Lehman is "the dean of Kansas Democratic delegates," according to the Wichita Eagle. The paper reports:

Lehman said her biggest concern about the election itself is voter-identification laws that Republicans have pushed through in a number of states, including Kansas.

She said the purpose is to suppress the vote, especially among Democratic-leaning constituencies such as elderly voters. And she scorned the Republicans’ contention that the laws are designed to combat voter fraud.

“It’s like Hitler said, if you’re going to tell a lie, tell a big lie, and if you tell it often enough and say it in a loud enough voice, some people are going to believe you,” Lehman said.

Seems that's exactly what you are practicing, Pat.

But the point of all this is that I have gone from mere blogger to political prophet.  So read this, my hyperventilating liberal friends, and weep...for the oracle will not be denied....
