With mandates in Congress, the White House, and Governor's mansions across the country, President-elect Barack Obama and Democratic leaders are itching to get to work to tackle the problems facing America and the world. The Republican Party is facing a new role in the background after several years in control. Some are praising the new president, some are ambivalent, but right-wing hate mongers across the country can rest assured that plenty of GOP legislators are putting the boot into the nation's first black Commander-in-Chief.
Representative Paul Broun, a Georgia Republican, has been forced to make a half-hearted and insincere apology after suggesting that Obama is similar in political philosophy to the mad, uni-testicled fascist dictator who led Germany into the Second World War and brutally invaded and murdered his way around the world.
Broun told us: "We can't be lulled into complacency, you have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. We all know that Osama Biden Laden and all those liberals will be shipping god-fearing gun owners into contemplation camps and keeping them there until they agree to vote Democrat or get gay-married."
Sarah Palin was later asked her thoughts on the matter during an interview with CNN. "Hitler? Germany? They're not in Alaska, are they?" she replied.
