Barney Frank Confronts Woman At Townhall Comparing Obama To Hitler

you know, it does nothing to really advance things (no, I don't know what you can do to make these people realize how much they devalue history this way), but by god that was satisfying.

I think it does something to advance things, actually. LaRouchites who draw Obama/Hitler posters and ask about the "Nazi" health care bill cannot be engaged with constructively, but they *can* be a significant component of derailing the debate others might be happening, if you let them. Treating their inanity with humorous ridicule is an important piece of not letting them. Letting everyone else see that this inanity is being treated with ridicule (and hearing all that applause!) is constructive, even if the questioner herself is a lost cause.
