No you don't...

Well folks, this is one of those posts wherein I slightly deviate from the topic of this blog.

However, because I've oft referred to the Bush administration as a facist regime on this webpage--somehow in the context of Taco Bell, of course--I feel that today's rant is justified.

check it:

for the past 4 years, we dedicated liberals have been outraged at the facist ways of Bush and his leaders (hardy har hard). OURAGED, right? and the GOP decides that "facism" is the buzzword that is going ot save the party in the November elections. Republicans are going to call everyone else, every terrorist group, every dissenting group "facists" and then Americans will be really, really scared AGAIN. Literally scared out of their minds, pushing them to vote for the Republicans--who, unlike the Democrats, do not like this thing called "facism" even if they is exactly what their politics resemble.

The highlights of article I pasted above:

While "fascism" once referred to the rigid nationalistic one-party dictatorship first instituted in Italy, it has "been used very loosely in all kinds of ways for a long time," said Wayne Fields, a specialist in presidential rhetoric at Washington University in St. Louis.

"Typically, the Bush administration finds its vocabulary someplace in the middle ground of popular culture. It seems to me that they're trying to find something that resonates, without any effort to really define what they mean," Fields said.

Stephen J. Wayne, a professor of government at Georgetown University, suggested White House strategists "probably had a focus group and they found the word `fascist.'

"Most people are against fascists of whatever form. By definition, fascists are bad. If you're going to demonize, you might as well use the toughest words you can," Wayne said.

My response: take your facist bullshit, GOP, and GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
