People say the darnedest things. Take GOP Congressional candidate Ian Bayne, for example. Last week, he called Phil Robertson the "Rosa Parks" of our generation. Yes, he did that. A few days later, Robertson himself must have thought that Rosa Parks wasn't good enough, and went on to compare himself to Jesus. Because nothing says Jesus like judging gay people.

In honor of this madness, here's a round-up of the five other most ridiculous public figure comparisons we've seen.
