It Isn’t Barbarism When We’re Giving Kudos
This week’s GOP presidential debate showcased an eruption of applause for Governor Rick Perry and his state’s track record of 234 more inmate executions than any other state, “more than any other governor in modern times.” Barbaric? According to Perry, absolutely not. Americans simply “understand justice.”
But I can see how one wouldn’t lose any sleep at night over such problems; after all, the real Americans are clapping.
