Dobson, Bush, Hitler, and the Klan

Talking Points Memo has a post that says
James Dobson compares the "men in white robes, the Ku Klux Klan" to the "black-robed men" on the Supreme Court.
With that in mind, I dug up Dr. Dobson's Newsletter: May, 2004. It says, in part:
Whether you support President George W. Bush or Senator John Kerry, there should be a certain dignity and respect accorded the office of the Chief Executive and to our other governmental leaders. [...] Billionaire George Soros helped fund a television commercial earlier this year comparing the President with Adolph Hitler. [...] Come on, America. We can do better than that.
This comes after lamenting the passing of national unity.

To recap:
  1. Pre-election, someone compares Bush to Hitler.
  2. James Dobson says our leaders deserve more respect, whether you support them or not.
  3. Eleven months later, Dobson compares our Supreme Court Justices to the Ku Klux Klan.
To what shall we compare James Dobson?
