Watching the RNC tonight reconfirmed my belief that the base of the party is comprised of selfish, heartless ignorant shitheads. Most people affiliated with either party are half-way committed to their party loyalty, which could switch the moment the base reveals itself in all its blinkered glory. For Democrats, at worst it means naive, but well-intentioned folks who get a little carried away in the moment. For Republicans, it’s like the ancient Romans at the Colloseum cheering on the lions. Only the prey are poor people, people of color, and “the gayz.”
What Was I Thinking?
