The Conservative Cackle

Paul Krugman on the movement conservatives and their...unique...sense of humour:
...if you’re poor or you’re sick or you don’t have health insurance, remember this: these people think your problems are funny.
They aren't as blatant about it here in Canada, but I'm sure my readers can all think of examples of conservative commentators making light of suffering or getting a chuckle out of homelessness and poverty. I can think of a half dozen examples off the top of my head. But of course anyone who snickers at the travails of Conrad Black is engaging in vicious class war attacks.
