Yes, folks, just when you thought the GOP couldn't get any further removed from compassion of any kind, New York City mayor hopeful, the GOP's very own Joe Lhota (sorry--can't read that name without thinking of that other wack-job Joe, the one in Arizona named Arpaio) let it be known that he is in favor of killing kittens.
You read that right.
A couple days ago two feral kittens were discovered living on the tracks of an aboveground subway station in Brooklyn. Since the likelihood was high that the kittens would be killed by a train (or by making inadvertent contact with the third rail), track workers decided to suspend train traffic temporarily while they tried to catch the kittens and remove them from harm.
Well, as anybody who has tried to catch a feral cat knows, it isn't just a matter of a few Here, kitty kittys and the judicious placement of a saucer of milk. It took two hours to chase these guys down.
Meanwhile, of course, people being what they are (and New Yorkers even more so) travelers on the stuck trains became infuriated. This flagrant trampling of the Constitution's LXVII Amendment rights, which guarantees all Americans of the bourgeoisie and above that their lives will never be inconvenienced by any creature as lowly as a kitten, prompted Lhota to issue his condemnation of the effort to save the kittens, which I paraphrase: "Run 'em over!"
Now let me introduce you to the vile, satanic monster-creatures whose antics nearly brought down the entire financial and business empire centered in New York City. Those with weak hearts or stomachs be prepared to look away...
Word is that both John Boehner and Mitch McConnell would also like to condemn the saving of these kittens, but can't because of the quantity of rage-foam buildup in their mouths.
