Gratuitous Cruelty - Today's Republican Party

From Eugene Robinson on Brian Williams Show.

Pretty good summation of today's Republican Party.

Gratuitous Cruelty.

Let that sink in.

It's not me saying it, it was a Pulitzer Prize winner saying it.

1. One can't help but get the impression

These are people who as children got their jollies picking wings off of insects, snipping the tails off of dogs and cats with their parents' garden shears, and laughing when bullied classmates were reduced to tears in elementary school.

3. I would add narcissists

to sadists and masochists. I think of Republicans as the party of "me".

4. Their preferred victims are always the weakest and

most vulnerable amoung us. Look no farther than the children they ripped from their family's arm and turned into orphans, or the desperate people they've denied insurance. They've made life harder, meaner and more uncertain for most of us.
