DC’s Patrick Howley sort-of reviews the new Crossfire reboot on CNN:
A loathsome creature like Stephanie Cutter, the roots jutting out from her blonde dye job as black as the recesses of her soul, can push her way onto national television to sit next to a former Speaker of the House and two sitting U.S. senators. A charmless, dead-eyed, tacky sociopath with no sense of ethics, an empty shell spewing her flat-throated bile without the slightest trace of self-awareness, can beat all of us to the front of the Darwinian line.
A figure of hatred and dishonesty, a person devoid of any pleasantness or redeeming human value, a treadmill-stomping, Starbucks-chugging monument to modern self-absorption, someone incapable of appreciating good art, fine food, or the love or kidness of her fellow man, can shove and kick and lie her way ahead of the rest of us in this misbegotten society. This unmitigated monster can appear before us, talentless, grating, fraudulently tanned, thrusting in our faces the career trophies she earned simply because we didn’t care enough to stop her from getting them.
One of the Fox News Babes (I can’t remember which one) asked on Twitter yesterday why right-wingers get so frothing-at-the-mouth upset over Cutter. But it really shouldn’t just be righties.
Sociopaths — and Cutter lies with such an easy and destructive cunning that I believe she is one — are wired so differently from other human beings that they’re practically a different species. And a very dangerous species. So when we detect one, we automatically recoil.
If lefties don’t recoil from Cutter, at least on the inside, that might be an indication of how they’re wired.
