“I think comparing a president of the United States to totalitarian dictators responsible for mass murder is appalling,” Jennifer O’Malley Dillon, executive director of the Democratic National Committee, said in a fundraising email. “I think calling Barack Obama a socialist is nonsensical. But I don’t think any of this is surprising.Oh really, Jennifer Two Last Names?
“Republicans keep saying that they aren’t extremists – but they keep doing things like this. And don’t let the tea party label fool you, these people are Republicans, and the only thing that scares me about them is that they’re fired up to vote in November,” added Dillon, who asked for donations of $5 or more to finance a new billboard and nationwide advertising campaign because “this isn’t about an isolated group of nuts in Mason City.”

Let's agree for a second "comparing a president of the United States to totalitarian dictators responsible for mass murder is appalling", then what about the Bushitler, Bushulini and other plays on Bush's name to associate him with "dictators responsible for mass murder."
As reader Bawb pointed out, the Bushitler references were everywhere for 8 years and you can still see them. Google has over 89,000 pages to look at and go to Democratic Underground for a "brief" list.
