Godwin's Law and Bill O'Reilly

Reported by Chrish - March 13, 2008 -

Wikipedia defines Godwin's law as follows:

Godwin's Law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies) is an adage formulated by Mike Godwin in 1990. The law states:

"As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."

"Godwin's Law is often cited in online discussions as a caution against the use of inflammatory rhetoric or exaggerated comparisons, and is often conflated with fallacious arguments of the reductio ad Hitlerum form."

The ultimate insult, guess who uses it incessantly?

H/T gmailer Jennifer for the heads up.
