I don't care who Godwin was or that he is credited with this assertion. However I will credit him with the curse since his attitude will have helped trends to continue.
There will be a point in time where events have so deteriorated that the value of any comparative arguments, such as how similar behavior led to the same repercussions, will be moot.[**Updated** to include the corollary:
When one is living the consequences of Godwin's Curse, adherents to Godwin's Law will then know what desperation really means.]
I will have you know that this video helped, especailly at 30 seconds in, helped me recognize this curse.
Hat tip to Kevin Baker.
Oh, and one more observation.
Someone please list and point to places where Bill Whittle has called out
Undoubtedly Whittle keeps showing us superbly how badly we are being served. I think he does so better than anyone else except, on some occasions, his pal Andrew Klavan.
See, this is what worries me about Whittle. I cannot quite shake the feeling that he is frequently laughing at Americans who are less well-connected than is he.
