Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League, on Fox News, discussing President Obama's speech at Notre Dame:

To give him an honorary degree would be like Howard University giving David Duke a degree in racial politics.

Dave N.: Now this is one that will make your head spin, Linda-Blair like, right off your shoulders if you think about it too much:

Bill Donohue, the man who virulently defended Mel Gibson against charges of anti-Semitism for his The Jews Killed Jesus Movie (accusing the ADL, one of Gibson's critics, of "threatening to poison Jewish-Catholic relations") -- all this before that unfortunate DUI thing kind of put a dent in Donohue's claim that "Mel Gibson represents the mainstream of America" -- while himself indulging in theories about the Jews controlling Hollywood (on multiple occasions) and who has made a career out of rhetorical thuggery against anyone who stands up to him ...

That guy is actually comparing the nation's first African-American president to the country's most notorious white supremacist, a man who recently did prison time for ripping off his donors to feed his gambling addiction, and more recently has been traveling to faraway places to spread the Jew-bashing white-supremacist gospel.

You can't make this s--t up.
