Rick Santorom offers brain twister on Senate floor 

Rick Santorum, man of mystery

Earlier today on the Senate floor, Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) hatched a mind stretching analogy for his fellow senators to chew on,

"[T]he audacity of some members to stand up and say, 'How dare you break this rule.' It's the equivalent of Adolf Hitler in 1942 'I'm in Paris. How dare you invade me. How dare you bomb my city? It's mine.'"

Below is a visualization to assist those playing along at home in solving Santorum's koan.
