Hypocrite Chris Matthews Hates Hitler Comparisons, But Made Them Himself (NewsBusters)

MSNBC's Chris Matthews doesn't like it when people compare American politicians to Hitler and the Nazis. Unless, of course, he's doing it himself. On Tuesday, the liberal Hardball anchor assailed Republican Congressman Randy Weber for referencing Hitler in a tweet about Barack Obama.

Matthews fumed, "Wouldn't it be good for the country if politicians drop the whole Hitler thing and returned to saying, 'Well, we Republicans and those Democrats just have an honest disagreement on some big stuff?'" He railed at Weber: "Is this something in your brain that has you comparing our twice elected American leader with Der Fuhrer, whose aggression in Europe caused the world 50 million lives?"
