Over the Top

One begins to wonder if centuries from now people will still make comparisons between those with whom they disagree and Adolph Hitler, even when their opponents did nothing remotely approximating the killing of 6 million Jews and initiating a horrible world war.

The latest example: Linda Hirshman, who at The New Republic's blog somehow imagines that Tim Russert deserves comparisons to Hitler for the audacious act of asking Hillary Clinton a question that Ms. Hirschman considers inappropriate.

What next? Will those of us who defend Mr. Russert draw comparisons to Heimlich Himmler?
