Guest hosting Bill Bennett's radio show today, RNC Chairman Michael Steele offered his thoughts on using "empathy" as a criterion for selecting judges. (Obama has said that he'll look for empathetic judges.)
I don't need some judge sitting up there feeling bad for my opponent because of their life circumstances or their condition. And short changing me and my opportunity to get fair treatment under the law. Crazy nonsense empathetic. I'll give you empathy. Empathize right on your behind. Craziness.
