I have to say, this little TV clip -- posted below -- shows how leftists can neither take a joke nor can they see what’s funny about their own leftism. On the Dec. 17th edition of Hannity & Colmes guest Charles Grodin decided that it would be, uh, funny to call host Sean Hannity a fascist and a Nazi. Yes, Charles Grodin lost the game violating Godwin’s Law, that states that if you are the first to call someone a Nazi in an argument you end meaningful discussion by heading for the cheapest, easiest, least applicable argument and name to call an opponent. Grodin’s knee jerk reaction, caused him to lose the game, but he did reveal his true feelings for that split second before he regained his composure and put his faux amiability back on.
Grodin was on H&C to flog his latest book titled "If I Only Knew Then: Learning From Our Mistakes," a book where a dozen or so liberals debase themselves by telling Grodin their mistakes in life. As Hannity points out, Grodin didn’t include any conservatives in his list. This oversight is probably for the obvious reason that Grodin probably doesn’t know any conservatives, never met one (Hannity aside) and wouldn’t deign to speak to one even if he did.
At about five minutes into the discussion about Grodin’s book, Hannity jokingly said that Grodin was a "left wing extremist," and this set Grodin off something fierce. In answer to Hannity’s ribbing an obviously angered Grodin called Hannity a "fascist," a "Nazi," and asked Hannity if he had co-hosted a show with "Goebbels" (as in Hitler’s propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels).
