Coming October 2022: "The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson"

The pro-life party …

… applauds a man and a state that kills 200-plus. Crazy. Just crazy.

I understand supporting the death penalty. I don’t, and never have—but I do understand the reason some think it’s righteous. What I don’t understand, and will never understand, is applauding death. Oh, maybe Hitler’s death or Bin Laden’s death. But here, people were simply applauding … death.

Honestly, I could never, ever, ever, ever vote GOP in a presidential election. And this sums it up. If nothing else, I want a person who possesses empathy and decency and compassion.
