    I realize that my reaction to their crappy policy turns me into an unempathetic asshole.

    In short, it turns me into THEM.

    I notice this in myself when I imagine Romney winning, how it won't likely really affect me individually as much as it will affect the lower-income, less-safety-netted people--including those who vote for Romney.

    In other words, I start thinking: "Sorry, suckers, you voted for this guy, now enjoy your impoverished retirement!"

    Anyway, not ragging, just explaining.  It's insidious, the way the Right turns you into one of THEM.
