Senator-elect Rand Paul has apparently compared our president to Hitler.
Surely he must realize that Barack Obama is in fact nothing like Hitler.
I did some research and learned that Hitler, at last count, has murdered some 6 million more people than the president.
Hitler also wrote a book whose primary thesis was "The Jewish Peril". Obama wrote a book about "Hope".
It is also believed that Hitler had a pretty wicked meth habit. I'm pretty sure Obama's near perfect teeth are proof that he is clean.
But yet, the comparisons persist. And persist. And persist.
And as time goes on, more of us will continue to ignore. And ignore. And ignore.
So what's the big deal?
Well, what happens when someone who actually is like Hitler comes along? And Mr. Paul or someone similar calls attention to the similarities.
Will we ignore him, like the little boy who cried wolf?
In case you don't remember, that's story didn't end well.
