Most of the time, I'm sympathetic to people. Even my enemies. For example, if Newt Gingrich got a brain tumor, I'd feel bad for him.
That's because I disagree with him and think his policies can be damaging but I honestly don't believe he's set out to make things worse for the country.
News of Arlen Specter's latest health problems leaves me cold.
I'm not rooting for his demise but I just don't give a damn.
If it weren't for Specter and his magic bullet conspiracy theory, the country might have had a shot at knowing what really happened to JFK.
When you've caused as many problems as Spector has, maybe you' don't deserve a lot of sympathy?
