DANGER! DANGER! MIND THE GAP! Willard Fails The Psychopath Test
In his NY Times column Saturday, Mean Boys, Charles Blow pins Romney down and dissects the mind of a bully. And you know, it's sure not all about Romney acting out his fears of being gay by violent and abusive behavior towards younger, weaker gay students. Blow recalls how he walked a blind teacher into a closed door o entertain himself and his clique. He remind us that the violent, now infamous, haircutting incident is not, as Romney is desperately trying to portray it, a youthful prank and hijinks. "It's an assault" and "honorable men don't chuckle at cruelty... Americans want a president who doesn’t target the weak, but valiantly seeks to protect them." Well... some Americans do. Other Americans actually admire psychopaths.
Saturday, just after I had read Blow's column, I drove way out to the edges of L.A. County to see another psychopath with my own eyes-- hands-on torturer and unpunished war-criminal Allen West, a guest at an all-white BBQ/fundraiser for Buck McKeon. On the way I listened to Ira Glass' NPR show, This American Life. Saturday's episode was all about psychopaths. "Wow," I thought, what could be better listening on my way to meet Allen West! But it was all about Mitt Romney. Turns out 4% of American businessmen are certifiable psychopaths. List to the tape of the show above-- get "Chainsaw" Al Dunlap out of your mind and just think about the spoiled prep school brat with the scissors and the cruel streak. It wants to be president... of the Unites States.
A day earlier, Romney, in an interview with Fox News' Neil Cavuto, had indicated that while he does not support same-sex marriage, he considers the adoption of children by same-sex couples a "right."
He said on Thursday: "And if two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, or even to adopt a child-- in my state individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children. In my view, that's something that people have a right to do. But to call that marriage is something that in my view is a departure from the real meaning of that word."
But then on Friday, he was asked, in an interview with CBS' WBTV in Charlotte, N.C., how his opposition to same-sex marriage "squared" with his support for gay adoptions. Romney told anchor Paul Cameron, "Well actually I think all states but one allow gay adoption, so that's a position which has been decided by most of the state legislators, including the one in my state some time ago. So I simply acknowledge the fact that gay adoption is legal in all states but one."
