The War Against Evil Empathy
Has the remaining remnants of the Republican Party actually gone mad?
"Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, speaking on This Week, warned that if a jurist were to show empathy, "politics, preferences, personal preferences and feelings might take the place of being impartial and deciding cases based upon the law, not upon politics." In an opinion piece in the Washington Times warning that Obama is poised to be the "first president to make lawlessness an explicit standard for Supreme Court Justices," Wendy Long of the Judicial Confirmation Network saw empathy as a kind of temporary insanity that so distorts a jurist's vision as to make it difficult "to uphold the federal judicial oath to dispense justice impartially." Over on Fox News, Sean Hannity warned that empathy is the first step toward "social engineering." And in a delicious Freudian slip, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama snorted: "I don't know what empathy means."
Now after the nomination of Sotomajor they are still attacking "Empathy" as well as using all the anti-woman code words in the Republican Feminazi Thesaurus & Attack Guide.
What is the deal here? Have they been infiltrated by Democrat operatives who are feeding them this destructive garbage. Has Regan's releasing of the asylum inmates finally overwhelmed the party? And they really do expect America to rally to their rhetoric. They really do?
