Hitler comparisons are OK if they're targeted at the "right" people

In this case the target is bloggers, and the one making the asinine comparison is the Philadelphia Daily News sports writer Bill Conlin:

The only positive thing I can think of about Hitler’s time on earth–I’m sure he would have eliminated all bloggers. In Colonial times, bloggers were called “Pamphleteers.” They hung on street corners handing them out to passersby. Now, they hang out on electronic street corners, hoping somebody mouses on to their pretentious sites. Different medium, same MO. Shakespeare accidentally summed up the genre best with these words from a MacBeth soliloquy: “. . .a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. . .”

Ace of Spades notes, "I mean, Good God, the 'pamphleteers' Conlin is so jazzed about Hitler executing were propagandizing against Hitler. And Conlin's all in favor of that."

On the other thing, if Stalin had been living, Conlin would have been in the Gulag, instead of boring everyone with his pretentious claptrap.

Or maybe not. He might have been a government official.

Conlin is way past his prime and should have retired many years ago.

He is a fathead and also has gotten very obese. At one time , his email address was something like twochairs@yahoo.com

I am not making that up - I sent him an email once about Norman Braman the former Eagles owner and was tempted to ask Conlin if he really had to use two chairs.
