The Boys from Brazil

by David Weigel

Doesn't it seem like Charles Krauthammer compares America's enemies du jour to Hitler with frequency approaching self-parody? Brendan "Spinsanity" Nyhan did some digging and found that not only does Krauthammer repeatedly compare foreign leaders to Hitler, he repeatedly uses the exact same quote, from Idaho Sen. William Borah, to do so. Reading through them really takes you back to the Chinese invasion of Israel back in 1992.

Talk about hack column writing - these read like a parody of lazy conservative opinion journalism.

Um. "Like" a parody?
