The Politics of Spite - (Truer words were never spoken)

Krugman says right wingers have the emotional maturity of bratty 13-year-olds. Often, I look at them and their inconsistent, illogical arguments, based on sheer hatred of Obama, and think they are more like spoiled nursery school children, whining and screaming, "It's MINE! Give it BACK! It's MINE!" They can't abide losing and they don't give a rat's whisker about the needs of the American people. Their hatred takes precedence and guides their political actions. There are only a few mature members left among them, and those people are cringing at what now represents their party: Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin, Joe the Plumber and the like. Krugman has it right when he says If Republicans think something might be good for the president, they’re against it — whether or not it’s good for America.
