How One Democrat Explains His Support for Casey: “In World War II, we had to make some unpleasant alliances to defeat fascism” June 29, 2006

Jon Robison, the blogger posting “I have to work for Bob Casey for Senate,”claims to be a Casey supporter, but the endorsement is so backhanded and cynical that it could pass for satire. I’m reprinting my favorite part below:

“This year I will do something which I have never done in over a hundred political campaigns. I am supporting a candidate who is openly opposed to a woman’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion.Why? In one word – Santorum….In World War II, we had to make some unpleasant alliances to defeat fascism. I’m not comparing Santorum to Hitler — Mussolini, maybe — Francisco Franco definitely.”

I don’t agree with Jon’s comparison of Santorum to a fascist, but let’s follow Jon’s logic all the way. If Santorum is a fascist, would that make Casey Stalin in this analogy? Or perhaps he’s just a French Nazi collaborator in the analogy? Either way, voting for him is clearly distasteful to Jon Robison. And it’s not that flattering to Casey either.
