Lying in bed, watching my TV boyfriend, Jon Stewart, and saw one of the more disturbing things I've seen in a while.
When I read or hear Republicans talk sometimes - especially today's right wingers, aka the tea partiers - I can't help but wonder, who are these people? What makes them think like that? Is it true ignorance, pure ideology or heartlessness that makes them so cavalier about those less well-off than they are? Depending on the context, sometimes I get it. I may not agree, but understand their line of thinking, their reasoning.
Tonight, however, not at all. The topic - the Republic "class warfare" uproar over the audacity of Warren Buffet to suggest gazillionaires pay a little more in taxes. Seeing a montage of clips one after the other does certainly increase the power of these inane sound bites. But it doesn't lessen the fact that they were said at all. Watch - two parts. These people... incredibly distributing.
