More cheers from the GOP base

Former Republican presidential candidate and televangelist Pat Robertson offers this bit of GOP compassion:

Asked what a man should do whose wife has Alzheimer’s, an increasingly decrepit Pat Robertson says, “I know it sounds cruel but if he’s going to do something, he should divorce her and start all over.”

In a week of Republicans cheering for record executions and wooing for the uninsured to drop dead – does this even get a blip on our disgust radar?

Two things:

1) This means Pat Robertson probably endorses serial adulterer and dying-wife dumper Newt Gingrich.

2) I shouldn’t have even bothered to ask about kittens and baby seals yesterday. The GOP answer is obvious.
