GOP Hopeful Hoekstra Compares House GOP to Iran Protesters -- and He's Serious

Rep. Pete Hoekstra, the Michigan Republican who wants to be governor, is getting hammered all over the inter-tube-thingy for twittering that the Iranian protesters are just like the House Republicans.

Talking Points Memo reproduced some of the comments that Hoekstra received in response. You can read them here.

Hard to pick out a favorite, but this one was pretty good: "Had to move all my stuff to a new office w/o a corner view. Now i know what the Trail of Tears was like."

Oh, the humanity.
