Newshounds has been covering G. Gordon Liddy's smearing of Cindy Sheehan, and points to Liddy's own history as a Hitler admirer: "'Unfortunately, [Sheehan and her supporters] are Americans who are very anti-Israel and in some ways, anti-Semitic. She uses the term how the neocons are doing this thing. That's code word for the Jews in the Pentagon.'...

Is Liddy willing to accuse 61% of Americans of being anti-Semitic? I doubt it. ...

What's also outrageous is that someone like Liddy would have the nerve to accuse someone else of being anti-Semitic. In a November, 2004 interview, Liddy reportedly called Hitler his first political hero and claimed Hitler 'made me feel a strength inside I had never known before... Hitler's sheer animal confidence and power of will [entranced me]. He sent an electric current through my body.'" (Newshounds)
