Tone Deaf is to the (AZ) GOP as Zephyr is to Hurricane

I lack words to express my revulsion, but then, none are really necessary in response to this (TPM via HuffPo):

Eyebrows shot up all over the country Thursday following news that that the Republican Party in Pima County, AZ — home to Tucson and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ (D) district — is raffling off a Glock similar to the one used to shoot Giffords in the head in January.

Props to the ousted Pima County GOP chief for his condemnation of this — but it ain’t his party any more.  Now, it seems, in order to be a 21st century Republican, you need to have both your moral sense and your capacity to imagine the emotions of others surgically excised at birth.

I got nothin’ more to say on this.  I gotta go OD on antiemetics.
