  •  He expects "respect" (0+ / 0-)

    This is common among conservatives, and like most things right wing, means something different from its normal English semantics.

    "Respect" means "I do not (God, country, whatever) need to take anything from you, my (views, behavior, whatever) are inviolate and holy."  This is yet another concept from the old Confederacy.  (The next step, of course, is a duel at dawn.  Yes, it's a good thing this didn't take place in Florida or that reporter would be quite dead.)

    Add some crystal meth and this guy is a psycho killer.  I'd have the SWAT team on call when he loses on election night.
