    Not much, I'll bet.  

    And yes, it's definitely a lack of empathy.  But it also shows just how STUPID some of these people in congress are.

      A friend and I were discussing just that earlier.

      It's as if they don't have the first clue about what Government actually does, nor do they care to.

      They're just convinced that Government is the mother of all evil and needs to be destroyed.

      That is, of course, unless there is a part of the government they need or want.

      They have so exceeded the limits of irony and hypocrisy that they're on another plane of reality.

        one part of the government they all like - the part they work in.

        The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy... the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.
