Spite is Easy

Life must be hard when you're so full of spite that you feel compelled to assemble a list of the 50 Most Loathsome People in America.

I dunno. I think the list is either meant to be humorous with a serious tone or serious with a humorous tone. Either way it comes off as obnoxiously juvenile.

It's so easy to cruelly mock someone. It's a lot harder to earnestly praise them. So many people spend all their time tearing down the things they hate but very little time uplifting the things they love.

But lifting things up takes a lot more energy than tearing them down. So we get these lists. That's too bad. I'd much rather read about who these guys admire. Then again, I'm not so sure guys like this admire anything.

hat tip: Moderate Voice.
