Well, that didn't take long

Jerry Brown pretty much immediately went Godwin on GOP opponent Meg Whitman, and did it pretty stupidly to boot:

"It's like Goebbels," referring to Hitler's notorious Minister of Propaganda. "Goebbels invented this kind of propaganda. He took control of the whole world. She wants to be president. That's her ambition, the first woman president. That's what this is all about."
Now, I don't claim to bed a professional historian or anything, but I don't remember when exactly it was that Goebbels "took control of the whole world."

Oh, and of course, the comments comparing Whitman to an infamous Nazi were "taken out of context." Yeah.
