It’s the end of the month, so political organizations around the nation are sending out their best fundraising letters to get people active and donating.

For South Carolina’s Republican Party, this involves calling the Internal Revenue Service “Obama’s Gestapo” — because Obama invented the IRS. Just as he invented presidential vacations, recess appointments and executive orders.

Casting Obama as a Nazi was a popular theme in the early days of the Tea Party, but Nazi connections are suddenly all the rage again on the right. Glenn Beck recently hosted an exhibit that included a copy of Mein Kampf signed by Adolf Hitler. Republican Governor Paul LePage of Maine has compared the IRS to the Gestapo more than once.
