OK, this is beyond the pale, but just the beginning of the smears that will befall Sen. Obama as the campaign continues.

Sullivan stated the caller "wasn't calling Barack Obama Hitler. He was just talking about how Hitler got the crowd all excited, and Barack Obama got the crowd all excited." Sullivan then stated that he would do a "side-by-side comparison" of a Hitler speech and an Obama speech. Sullivan then introduced the "comparison" by stating: "So, ladies and gentlemen, from the past, a little archive, a little walk down Der Fuehrer's memory lane. Here he is, the one, the only, Adolf Hitler!"

Are you creeped out yet? The idiot known as Sullivan tries to justify this walk on the dark side and compares Obama to Hitler because one of his caller's brought it up and Hitler got people fired up too. OK, sure. Good for the caller (who identifies as a Republican) who isn't standing for this garbage. And to think Hugh Hewitt believes right wing talk radio is sensible.

"All right, we won't play Hitler any more, then." But Sullivan then pleaded: "One time -- oh, come on, one more time? Can I, please, one more time? Just one more time? Then I won't do it again." He then added: "Until the next time."

Get your seat belts on because the next time will be right around the corner.
