Peter King just compared Rand Paul to Charles Lindbergh, says he thought Republicans "got rid of that" in the 1930s.

Rep. Peter King isn’t shy when it comes to his overzealous support of Obama’s proposed strike against Syria, or about smearing those who disagree with him. He’s especially not shy when comparing Sen. Rand Paul to Charles Lindbergh, famous aviator and pre-World War II Nazi sympathizer.
Pretty harsh words. Rep. King tosses them pretty much at the drop of a hat.
From last month:

And he’s not the only one. Here’s Sen. John “Wacko Bird” McCain in an interview with The New Republic:
Wow. John McCain groups Rand Paul and Ted Cruz with Henry Ford, Lindbergh and "isolationist, America-Firsters." http://t.co/s4wVAnlDiN

And again a few months before that:
Yes he goes there — crazy, angry grandpa McCain identified Rand Paul as a member of 1930s anti-Semite tradition http://t.co/M8i3x5L6pY

And let’s not forget New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie:
"But then Christie had compared Paul to Charles Lindbergh—for his isolationism, not the aviation." http://t.co/do2XzEGmSV

So it appears the establishment wing of the GOP party has found it’s one-word answer to a Senator who dares question profligate spending and war adventurism: “NAAAAAAAAZI!”
