In Godwin we trust: SC Dem chair likens Nikki Haley to Hitler’s mistress
We already know Democrats aren’t too into God — evidently Godwin is where it’s at.
No God, but plenty of Godwin: after CA Dem chair calls Paul Ryan "Goebbels", SC Dem chair calls Nikki Haley "Eva Braun" http://t.co/gmkCXUjP

There’s a veritable Godwin-fest taking place at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this week:

CA Dem Party Chair: Ryan, GOP Like Nazis http://t.co/uDmEIl1k

Always the classy one, South Carolina Democratic Party chair Dick Harpootlian wanted in on the action.
State party chairman says Gov. Nikki Haley's news conference yesterday was in a basement "a la Eva Braun." #dnc2012

Speaking at a Democratic National Convention breakfast this morning, Harpootlian gleefully Godwinned himself for a cheap and sleazy laugh at the expense of Gov. Nikki Haley.
On Gov. Nikki Haley participating in daily news briefings in a basement studio at the NASCAR Hall of Fame: “She was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun.”
Braun, along with her lover Adolf Hitler, committed suicide in a bunker as World War II was coming to an end.
Reporting on the absurd comparison, South Carolina newspaper The State described Harpootlian as “never [at] a loss for a quick quip.” Harpootlian’s despicable “quips” have included calling Haley “the gubernatorial equivalent of the ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey” and comparing her to Snooki and the Kardashians.
Another out of line comment from a Dem party chair- “S.C. Dem. Chair Compares GOP Gov. to Hitler's Mistress” http://t.co/ZZ8mHQjp

OK, so far we've had Goebbels, Hitler, and Eva Braun. That leaves 2 days for Ilse Koch, Julius Streicher and Rudolf Hoess

Gosh, these Democrats are truly the epitome of civility and “new tone,” aren’t they? We intolerant haters could certainly learn a thing or two from our betters.
SC Dem Chairman refers to Nikki Haley as Hitler's mistress. No word of condemnation yet from the ADL or SPLC #epicfail

When will First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden call on S Carolina Dem Chair Harpootlian to apologize to Gov Nikki Haley? #waronwomen

Clearly, the war on women is coming from the left. Not a day goes by that they don't launch some missile at a female. Now it is Harpootlian!

As always, the so-called War on Women is a classic case of liberal projection.
But the oh-so-feminist lapdog media will be all over this one, right?

Chirp. Chirp. Chirp.
Um wow. Will Democrats force his resignation? Don't hold your breath. http://t.co/RbCo7e04

Dems force Dick Harpootlian to resign? Ha! RedState’s Erick Erickson is absolutely right — holding your breath for that is nearly guaranteed to be hazardous to your health.
Gov. Haley nails Dick Harpootlian:
Nikki Haley responds at GOP presser: "Dick Harpootlian is an angry, hateful man."
