GOP congressman claims a vote against Bush is a vote for Hitler

This one comes courtesy of the :: jewschool ::Blog:

"Republican Congressman Tom Cole reportedly claimed (PDF) that a vote against the re-election of President Bush is like supporting Adolph Hitler during World War Two.

'If George Bush loses the election, Osama bin Laden wins the election,' Cole is quoted in this week's edition of the Yukon Review which covered the recent meeting of the Canadinan County Republicans where Cole was a speaker. The newspaper says Cole claims if Bush loses his re-election bid, the enemies of the U-S will interpret it as a victory for bin Laden.

Later, he did try to backpedal, but weakly."
