    The Republican party has been offering outlandish historical parallels to express their opposition to Obamacare (Nazi appeasement, etc).

    I would offer a different one to describe the current shutdown of our federal government: This is the Fort Sumter of the Confederate Revival. The Tea Party, never strong on facts, has again mistaken the war and cause from which their passion springs.
