Occupy Protesters vs. Santorum

That was painful to watch.

Rick Santorum strikes me in many ways as a bad person with dangerous ideas. He thinks in unnervingly authoritarian and bigoted ways. And the combination of his arrogant and idiotic ideas and overgrown jock demeanor in speaking and debating makes him seem to me like a classic douchebag.

But these protesters are so juvenile, self-righteous, threatening, bullying, and, most of all, unhinged that they made me actually feel for the guy for one brief glittering moment. Not shrewd at all. Not tasteful at all. Not civil at all. Not democratic at all. No good at all.
