Is anyone running for president in the GOP field who isn’t a sociopath?
And I am not meaning this as a partisan jab, I imagine many republicans must find this stuff abhorrent as well. But oddly it doesn’t seem to matter to the base of the party. And sometimes the base is truly scary – just as recent example crowds at GOP debates have enthusiastically cheered the death penalty and booed the golden rule.
