Republicans Tweet Hitler-Pelosi Agreement on Health Care 'Joke'

Republicans got into a bit of hot water for tweeting a joke on the NRCC Twitter account. The tweet referred to a skit where Hitler is mad at Obama for abandoning the mandate that people would have to sign on to the government option, but takes some comfort in the fact that Pelosi is still on his side; the side pushing socialized medicine. It is done through fake subtitles using the 2004 Hitler biopic "Der Untergang". The part of the movie is toward the end as Hitler, in his bunker with the allies closing in on Berlin, realizes he is going to lose the war. The same section has been used many times for many different points and has become somewhat of an internet meme. Republicans have since deleted the tweet and issued an apology.

"The Tweet: "Funny Video: Moonbattery: Hitler Reacts to ObamaCare Maneuvers"

"Hitler, played by Swiss actor Bruno Ganz, is trapped in his bunker with his generals, and rants [in the phony subtitles] about President Obama's revisions to his socialized medicine plan -- and how only he and Nancy Pelosi are still fighting the good fight.

"What the hell are the Democrats doing?" Hitler screams. "At least I have Pelosi on my side. What's wrong with them?... I socialized medicine overnight and everything's going great... Like Pelosi, I don't give a s**t about the American people.""

Ace has the clip (video embedded below).
