Sure, I burned your house down, stole your car and spent
$10,000 on your credit card, but I’m the victim here.
By Bob Simpson (Writer)
When I think on the very worst people to inhabit this planet, three come to mind: that blueberry pancakes singer, Ray Lewis (he killed a guy), and a group of people I’ll lump together and call “Blind Victims.”
I’m sure you know the type – people that are only consistent in their ability to do horrible things, then can’t understand why people persecute them. This rant has bloomed thanks to Doris Kearns Goodwin’s fantastic history book, Team of Rivals. I touched on one of these characters a few weeks ago, General George McClellan, a man so completely devoid of humility that his statements seem like lines from a farce. The book also devotes numerous passages to the bumbling ambition of Treasury Secretary, Salmon P. Chase, a man known in modern times for having a delicious first name, especially with lemon and rosemary.
