Too Much Time in Space

John Glenn, who logged 218 hours in space as an astronaut, and later served in the Senate as a Democrat from Ohio, sizes up the Bush strategy:
Former senator John Glenn (D-Ohio) took the defense a step further by comparing the Republicans' misleading statements to those of Nazi Germany. "You've just got to separate out fact from fiction....Too often, too often, in this country, if you hear something repeated, it's the old Hitler business -- if you hear something repeated, repeated, repeated, repeated, you start to believe it," he said. []
Not John Glenn, of course, because he's a Democrat. And too dumb to come up with a new cliché.
