The Gestapo are Coming, The Gestapo are Coming, Warns GOP Congressman

Well, apparently Georgia Congressman Paul Broun didn't get the memo from President Bush, Senator McCain, and others that now was the time for bipartisanship and support for the new president. As an AP story reports, Broun thinks the U.S. under an Obama presidency is heading for creation of a Gestapo-like civilian national security force: "It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this national security force. I'm just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may — may not, I hope not — but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism."

Crazy? Off base? What would make him think that? But it gets better.

Oh, and the coup de grace:

Okay, so your not calling the president-elect Hitler, you're just saying he has the "potential" to become like Hitler. Memo to the GOP--you need to move quickly to contain this and point out the obvious--that Congressman Broun does not speak for the party and that he is an obvious nut-job.
