Whoa. Talk about "The Audacity of Right-Wing Radio Talking Heads"....

Listen (courtesy of the watchdog group Media Matters for America) to a segment of Tom Sullivan's radio show on KFBK (1530 AM) on Monday, in which he compares the oratorical style of Hitler and Barack Obama.

Here's the summary from Media Matters:

Fox News Radio host Tom Sullivan took a call from a listener who stated that when listening to Barack Obama speak, "it harkens back to when I was younger and I used to watch those deals with Hitler, how he would excite the crowd and they'd come to their feet and scream and yell." Sullivan then played a "side-by-side comparison" of a Hitler speech and an Obama speech. Sullivan mimicked the crowd during both speeches, yelling, "Yay! Yay!" When a later caller complained that Sullivan was "denigrating" Obama with the comparison, Sullivan said he wouldn't play it again, then begged: "Can I, please, one more time? Just one more time? Then I won't do it again. ... Until the next time."
