Ellis Washington Gets It Wrong Yet Again
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Ellis Washington keeps up his record of flamboyantly wrong commentary with his Jan. 16 WorldNetDaily column, in which he states:

Obama and the Democrats are essentially tyrannical fascists. If you doubt me, remember Russia for over 300 years was ruled by a total of 18 czars of the Romanov dynasty. However, as David Rothkopf of "Foreign Policy" noted, the Obama administration had appointed more czars than that in just three months. That number doesn't even include his health-care czar.

It seems to have escaped Washington's notice that 1) "czar" is not the actual title of any of these officials, 2) they are in each charge of narrowly defined issues and, thus, lack the all-encompassing dictatorial power of a Romanov czar, 3) a significant number of the Obama administration "czars" were approved by Congress, exploding Washington's "tyrannical fascist" view of the current government, and 4) President Bush had a lot of czars too.

Remember, Washington is the "authorized biographer for the conservative intellectual Dr. Michael Savage."
