They Don't Get It

And they don't want to get it.  Latest Example- Michael Gerson, in the Washington Post:

"In the news coverage of Newt Gingrich’s rapid rise, there is wonderment that evangelicals are willing to forgive his serial offenses against the Seventh Commandment."

Gerson naturally tries to explain this phenomenon with a bunch of nonsense about how right wing Christians supposedly love reformed sinners.  This might be believable if it weren't for the obvious fact that Republican sinners don't even need to pretend to reform to get their votes, while Democratic sinners can reform from now until doomsday without getting a shred of forgiveness from right wingers.

No, I have stated the real reason for this phenomenon over and over again.  The simple truth is that American Conservatism is about one thing and one thing only, to the exclusion of all else:  Cut My Taxes.  Give me all the free Government services I want, but don't charge me a penny for something that benefits anyone else.  All the rest is window dressing, to convince not us, but themselves, that despite their grotesque greed and hatred, they hold the moral high ground.

I have been saying this for years, and every day there is more evidence for it.  It's time for people like Michael Gerson to accept the ugly truth.

I certainly can attest to the fact that you've been saying Greed is the big motivator of the right, for decades.
The 99% have caught on at last.
