TEA PARTY CHEERS DEATH

Having political, ideological or philosophical differences aside, generally, we tend to think of Americans as the kind of folk who don't applaud death, even a generalized one. (Exceptions include Osama bin Laden and Emperor Palpatine.) But during Monday night's CNN Tea Party Republican Debate, that all changed.

After asking Ron Paul a hypothetical question about an uninsured patient who needed care, Wolf Blitzer pushed the point harder: "Congressman, are you saying that society should just let him die?" Before Paul could respond, however, a few members of the Tea Party audience began whooping and cheering, as if the Pennzoil car had just gotten the checkered flag.

Since callous inhumanity has always inspired us, we decided to put together this mashup of some other deaths the Tea Party might enjoy. You know, while we're all being so sensitive and engaging in a respectful exchange of ideas.
