Slime has no compassion, no honor, no respect

No, slime has no compassion or honor or respect for anything. Certainly not when it concerns the opportunity to raise money for political gain. How could anyone see the tragedy in Arizona as an opportunity to raise money for their own political gains?

A democrat could and a democrat has.

There has been no shortage of individuals and institutions that have sought to capitalize on the shootings in Tucson. Add Vermont senator Bernie Sanders to that list.
This afternoon Sanders sent out a fundraising appeal, seeking to raise money to fight Republicans and other “right-wing reactionaries” responsible for the climate that led to the shooting.
He writes:
Given the recent tragedy in Arizona, as well as the start of the new Congress, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a few words with political friends in Vermont and throughout the country.  I also want to thank the very many supporters who have begun contributing online to my 2012 reelection campaign at www.bernie.org.  There is no question but that the Republican Party, big money corporate interests and right-wing organizations will vigorously oppose me.  Your financial support now and in the future is much appreciated.
 Go ahead....READ the rest of it if you can stomach it.

It is repulsive... or whatever word is more disgustingly descriptive.

Typical is the word I would choose.
