Healthcare and the Dry Drunk President

I thought this was excellent, from Digby at Hullabaloo.

I have no doubt that this lazy, privileged moron truly believes that his good health proves that you only get sick if you aren't a "disciplined" person like he is. (Never mind the fact that the man is an alcoholic who has substituted exercise addiction for booze.) Like most rich Republicans, his consciousness would only be raised if he or someone he loves got sick, at which point he would be the first to point fingers. They just don't have the empathy gene --- unless they personally know someone who's gotten sick from melamine poisoning or mad cow or tainted prescriptions drugs or e. coli, it just doesn't matter. (See: Nancy Reagan, stem cell research.) Geez, they don't even care about wounded soldiers . . . .
