I was previously considering tearing apart the New York Times editorial "A Failure of Leadership", then I decided that just watching them crash and burn from the sidelines was the better option.
However, it's now come to my attention (link) that they're comparing those who opposed the Senate illegal immigration amnesty bill to George Wallace in this sentence:
The anti-immigrant hard-core - no amnesty today, no amnesty tomorrow, no amnesty forever - must not be allowed to hold the nation hostage.
That appears to be derived from a George Wallace speech which included "segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever". Obviously, this is scurrilous even for the NYT, and it probably won't be too long before they offer an editorial vioting Godwin's Law.
