Enough already with the Hitler talk. War drums and loose lips are giving the old Austrian paperhanger a bad name. Der fuehrer has held the franchise as "most evil figure in history," and now excitable politicians and pundits of little imagination are trying to take the title away by putting him in league with mere pikers.
A Jewish lawmaker said Wednesday that he wants an apology from a Republican candidate for California governor who compared President Barack Obama's gun control policies to those of dictators such as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and North Korea's Kim Jong Il.
State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks, posted a Twitter message Tuesday with an image that compared what he said were figures who have supported gun rights with those who have supported gun control.
I certainly understand why freedom-lovers around the world are upset over Russian President Vladimir Putin's recent incursion into Ukraine. And I understand why the good people of Georgia, Estonia and other democracy-minded countries take exception to this sort of Iron Curtain saber-rattling.

As the Olympic circus packs up and flies away from Russia, the Black Sea city of Sochi is looking anxiously toward the future.

A ragtag parade down the center of town marked the opening ceremonies of the first Winter Olympics.

Conservatives spend a lot of time whining about what many see as the partisan bias of what we like to call the "mainstream media," but few grasp just how far ideologically committed journalists might be willing to go to help those they admire.
Today is Saturday, Jan. 4, the fourth day of 2014. There are 361 days left in the year.
Who lost Ukraine? This is the question many Western policymakers are asking following recent dramatic events in the former Soviet republic. The country's pro-Kremlin leader, President Viktor Yanukovych, is on the verge of permanently consigning Ukraine to Russia's sphere of influence.
Stalin as a great leader and argued that the Soviet Union was well on its way to becoming the utopia communists and leftists envisioned.
He failed, but this explains Mr. Putin's obsession with subjugating Kiev.
