In my training days we had a term for transcendentally bad people:
Just when you thought that it was safe to turn on the morning news, you have this guy on trial for conspiring to kidnap and eat women. Now this guy thinks he's Hannibal Lecter without the intellect and subtlety of purpose. In fact, his desires are more in keeping with the rich character who wanted to see Hannibal eaten alive by pigs than the doctor himself. This is all beyond the pale.
Which leads me to the Republican Congressional Leadership...they are looking to watch the nation devour itself in hatred and ignominy rather than allow our duly elected President to do his job. This is also beyond the pale.
