Inappropriate analogy watch

After Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich failed to secure enough valid signatures to qualify for the primary ballot here in Virginia, his national campaign director Michael Krull wrote:

Newt and I agreed that the analogy is December 1941: We have experienced an unexpected set-back, but we will re-group and re-focus with increased determination, commitment and positive action. Throughout the next months there will be ups and downs; there will be successes and failures; there will be easy victories and difficult days – but in the end we will stand victorious.

Yes, that December 1941.
