More on the Debate

BTW, it was also a disgusting charade, a spectacle of how many people could kiss a dead president's ass in less than two hours. Even elderly moron Ron Paul, who so famously told Reagan to kiss his ass back in the 80s, and not in a good way. He was right there sucking at the Holy Dick of Saint Ronald along with the rest of that sad pack of political porkchops.

Of course, to be fair, it was held at the so-called Reagan Library, and some praise of the dead saint and his "revolution" was probably thought to be de rigueur, seeing as how it was taking place under the suspended corpse of a plane reputed to be Air Force One. Okay, maybe it really was, but at any given time there was more than one "Air Force One" in the nation's arsenal. In practice, there were several, if not many, and each would get its designation as Air Force One only when the president was actually aboard... And did you see Nancy Reagan the couple of times they cut to her? If she actually knew where she was and what she was doing there, you couldn't tell it from that spaced-out look she had. She's either on some good meds, or Alzheimer's turned out to be contagious in Reagan World.

Anyway, I digress. The most appalling -- the most chilling -- moment came when Brian Williams, the moderator, made mention of the fact that serial-killer Rick Perry had been the executive in charge when 234 people had been killed by the state. Before Perry had a chance to stroll out his smug canned response, the room erupted in applause.

Applause. These are all presumably kind of mainstream-ish Republicans, and they applaud the fact that the Texas governor has killed 234 people.

But keep it in perspective: The current governor's body count is negligible compared to that of his predecessor, Baby Doc Bush, whose total body count, direct and indirect, is in the hundreds of thousands, maybe even by this time the millions, nearly rivaling that of Pol Pot.

But, as Orrin Hatch (R-Underwear) said one time, without a hint of irony or sarcasm, "the death penalty is how we show our respect for human life"...
