Conservaties Showing Their True Colors

Although these comments from the right-wing media about health care reform are clearly disgusting, at the same time they are rather refreshing as well.  At least they are being honest about what their real concerns are in the HCR debate.  After all the back and forth of the last year with the obfuscation and outright lies from the Republican Party, at long last they are coming clean.  What it comes down to is that they don’t give a rat’s ass about anything other than their own personal needs.  We live in the richest country in the world, and yet our health care system is one of the worst in the world, comparable only to the likes of Mexico and Turkey.  But that’s OK by these right-wingers — 45,000 Americans die every year because they don’t have health insurance, and they couldn’t care less.  How’s that for good old compassionate conservatism?

And then there’s all the hatred emanating from last week’s CPAC meeting.  Here’s one of these idiots applauding an alleged incident of spousal abuse, and here they are showing their love of torture.  But the star of the show had to be this Republican Congressman actually making a hero of the terrorist who flew a plane in to the IRS building in Austin.

The people who make up Idiot Nation are a big enough problem on their own — but these are examples that go far beyond plain old stupidity.  These are vile, contemptible people who can’t use stupidity as an excuse.  And hopefully as they keep opening their mouths and removing all doubt about just how despicable they are, the majority of Americans will see them for what they truly are.
