If they only had a heart

Rick Perry is catching a lot of flak for saying people in the new GOP don't have a heart. Well, okay, what he said was:
"If you say that we should not educate children who come into our state for no other reason than that they've been brought their through no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart."
And he added that it was states' rights dammit and also enlightened self interest. To be precise, what he added was:
"We need to be educating these children because they will become a drag on our society. I think that's what Texans wanted to do. Out of 181 members of the Texas legislature when this issue came up [there were] only four dissenting votes. This was a state issue. Texas voted on it. And I still support it today."
But the main thing I want to comment on is ... that "don't have a heart" thing? Duh.

These are the people who cheer for executions and applaud letting a sick man die.

Obviously, I hold no brief for Governor Goodhair. But this incarnation of the GOP is no prize either.
