21. It's called "living in the moment" -- and it's the cornerstone of the Rethug pyschosis.

(link) Combine interpersonal exploitation ("tak(ing) advantage of others to achieve (one's) own ends" ) with a sense of entitlement ("unreasonable expectations of...favorable treatment or automatic compliance" ) and arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes, and you get people who are so egotistical it doesn't occur to them to contemplate the possible consequences of their actions. Rethugs are TOTALLY INCAPABLE of this kind of thinking:

"If I take a cookie without asking, Mommy will get mad."
"If I'm not home by midnight, my folks will ground me for a decade."
"I'll have to study all night if I have any hope of passing the exam."
"If I don't hand in this report before the deadline, I'll get fired."
"If I cheat on my partner, s/he will break up with me."

Remember when Tom Delay went on trial, and he got a judge removed from the case because he was a Democratic contributor? To his total surprise, the prosecutor struck back by having the replacement judge removed for being a Republican contributor! Rethugs are so morally tunnel-visioned on achieving their ends, they don't see anything else -- such as the fact that Penn State, which is under criminal investigation due to the Jerry Sandusky case, also qualifies for their new policy!
