Facts to remember about the Enabling Act

When Hitler got the Enabling Act ‘passed’, he first arrested the Communists, so they couldn’t vote at all, and filled the room with Nazi thugs on the day of the vote. What this suggests to me is that, even before the Enabling Act, Hitler had more openly despotic power than does Bush-Cheney so far. So let that help keep your spirits up, when you hear the new Torture and Disappearance Act likened ‘exactly’ to the Enabling Act.

Rick Santorum on the occupation of Iraq

As the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the Eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else.... It's being drawn to Iraq and it's not being drawn to the U.S. You know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don't want the Eye to come back here to the United States.
