Fighting Over The Same Organic Vegetables

"The who's-a-Nazi fight, which Nancy Pelosi started last week by claiming that ObamaCare opponents were 'carrying swastikas,' has taken an interesting turn. Pelosi's defense, such as it was, was that she meant to criticize ObamaCare opponents who likened the president's plan to Nazism--which would have been a valid criticism had Pelosi made it clearly and not in a way that insinuated the opponents were Nazis., a Web site of the conservative Media Research Center, notes that CNN, NBC and MSNBC have all shown 'a poster of President Obama--on whose face a Hitler mustache has been Photo Shopped--bearing the caption "I've Changed."' to illustrate the supposed extremism of ObamaCare critics:

But there's a problem with this media narrative.

For written at the poster's bottom is the web address ',' the political action committee website for Communist and perpetual Presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche.

We're not sure that describing LaRouche as a "communist" is fair to communists; our sense is that his ideology is eclectically extreme and nutty, drawing elements from left, right and directions we haven't heard of."
-- James Taranto, on everyone's favorite political cultist (well, mine anyway: he's loo-ny) who's followers can be found in front of most Trader Joe's and Whole Foods outlets - yes, like the Democrats, he knows where his natural constituency can be found - which is why he's rarely mentioned in The Wall Street Journal.
