So last night, whilst awaiting the President's hilarious routine, C-SPAN was showing some of the video from the brunch Sat. AM benefiting the worthy cause of Epilepsy research. Making a plea for contributions and funding for the charity was none other than that RW POS Alex Castellanos. While he was telling his heartfelt story, all I could think of is his support of candidates who want to shut off funding to the poor and the less-fortunate, the sick and the disabled. In fact, he spent the morning cutting off Rachel Maddow on MTP. Way to go, Alex.
It reminded me of former NJ governor Christie Whitman who delivered both a Caesarian and a normal-delivery baby. Knowing the difference, she ensured that no NJ hospital could kick a woman out of the hospital quickly who had had a C-section. Because it happened to her. Other issues she didn't care about too much...she didn't know about them. and didn't care. That's how she could say that the air was safe at the WTC site even though she knew it wasn't. No goring of her oxen.
George Will, who has a special child, was all for public funding for these indivduals. But not for anyone else's problems which he did not have to endure.
Remember Nancy Reagan coming out for stem cell research when it was revealed that it might help victims of alzheimer's? If her beloved "Ronnie" hadn't had the disease, would it be anywhere near her radar? And then there's Darth Vader himself, Cheney, coming out in support of gay marriage. Helps that he has a lesbian daughter in a long-term relationship. I'm sure he'd bother to give his "support" if the facts were otherwise.
