DeLay DeLies

Remember DeLay (got the name right this time!) saying liberals are Nazis? He still hasn't learned:
When you use the big lie in order to gain and maintain power, it is immoral and it is outrageous...

It's the same process. It's the same criminalization of politics. it's the same oppression of people. It's the same destroy people in order to gain power. It may be six million Jews. it may be indicting somebody on laws that don't exist. But, it's the same philosophy and it's the same world view.

Also, liberals--in addition to being Nazis--are unpatriotic:
They are aiding and abetting the enemy by telling the enemy your strategy. Do you think the enemy's going to say well don't tell me that I don't want to know it so I can't. Yeah, when you tell them what you're going to do and you reveal what you are going to do and you send the message what you are going to do. They can design their strategy accordingly. And they can kill more Americans.

Apparently DeLay hasn't figured out that this whole "bringing the troops home" kinda makes it so that they can't kill more Americans. Well, at least not as easily.
I looked up the definition of patriotism.

Good to know that he finally looked up the word patriotism--apparently he's been throwing it around without knowing what it meant.
It's the love, support and defense of one's country. And it's the devotion to that love, support and defending one's country. And when someone is out aiding and abetting the enemy by ... standing at the bottom of the Pentagon calling it the chamber of death and that we export death and destruction and that we ought to destroy the Pentagon. That is not patriotism by definition.

Y'know, I've been staring at that definition of patriotism for a while now. And I can't find anywhere in there where it says that we should stick our heads in the sand or turn a blind eye to the fact that we do export death and destruction. Or maybe when we give it a fancy name like "extraordinary rendition" it doesn't count?
