When Romney spoke of helping the helpless, silence in the convention hall.
Chris Matthews described how the crowd had cheered at all the predictable times in Romney's speech, up until that one. He said they were fully primed as he built to that point, but they were silent anyway. Matthews is broadcasting from the hall, so he should know better than any of the other MSNBC cast exactly what happened there.

Isn't it funny how Republicans boiled Christianity down to: (1) judging others; (2) make a public show of your religiosity; (3) denying help to those who need it; and (4) no self-sacrifice whatever. Right in line with just about every single topic covered by the words attributed to Jesus in the New Testament. Maybe in another 2000 years, they will even take the same position on each of those topics that he took, instead of doing the exact opposite of what he taught on those subjects.

On the bright side, they just may be halfway there.

3. Repukes never like doing anything that Jesus actually told them to do
Like caring for the poor, or not being hateful douchebags.
