Karma vs. Schadenfreude

All this talk about the GOP leadership having some kind of “intervention” with Donald Trump to get his presidential campaign back on the rails led Greg Sargent to put up this headline:

Republicans nominate dangerously insane person to lead America, then panic when he proves he’s dangerously insane.

Overindulging in schadenfreude can provoke bad karma, so it’s never a good idea to chortle too much about the misfortune of others, but what the hell.

3 barks and woofs on “Karma vs. Schadenfreude

  1. Someone must intervene soon or pull the plug or grab the mic or throttle that crazy. Last night Lawrence O’Donnell scared the hell out of me as he described the process of sending an atomic missile off toward Russia or wherever. Six minutes. That’s the amount of time a President is given to choose to send or not after he’s been notified a missile is headed toward San Francisco or New York or the White House. We’re committed to use atomic weapons only in self-defense. An unstable and impulsive President or a drunk as Nixon was in his last year in the office can blow us all to hell.
