    The Republican Teaparty: they are Legion →

    The audience at Saturday night’s Republican presidential debate erupted into applause at the mention of waterboarding, an interrogation technique that is often described as torture.GOP debate audience cheers waterboarding: Raw Story

    Add this to the list of other discussions of death that have made this audience / voting base cheer and applaud: Perry’s grand total of 234 executions in Texas, and the idea of allowing sick people to die if they have no health insurance.

    Add this to the list of GOP presidential candidates who want the poor to pay more income tax while giving the wealthy even more tax benefits. Add this to those candidates who say the unemployed shouldn’t eat, or who lie and say they make less income than federal workers. To these people, it’s class warfare to question why there is so much income disparity now between the richest one percent and the rest of us.

    These are the people who idolize a man who claims to hold marriage sacred, yet left his second wife when she was in the hospital with cancer for his mistress. These are people who want war. Who want war to never stop.

    This base is truly unified. We ask who they are and they answer they are Legion, they are many.

    And make no mistake about it, they answer to only One. This One:

BONUS: Greg Sargent asked McCain spokesperson Brooke Buchanan for a response to Santorum. Her emailed response: “Who?”
