Sociopath of the Month

This story's a couple of days old. but I keep coming back to it:
Venture capitalist and Ohio Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance spoke on Friday about the “cultural wars” being waged by the left and took aim at politicians without children who “don’t have a personal indirect stake” in improving the country. “And why is this just a normal fact of American life, that the leaders of our country should be people who don’t have a personal indirect stake in it via their own offspring, via their own children and grandchildren,” Vance asked, noting that he was not referring to people who are unable to have children.
There's a certain lack of bASIC humanity in evuidebe here -- it is, after all, ,perfectly normal, and actually considrered virtuous, to care about people whether they're relatives or not.

And I can't help thinking there's something very biblical about this --Old Testament biblical, considering how concerned the ancient Hebrews were with inheritance and bloolines.

At any rate, the man's a jerk.

Vias Joe.My.God.
