By Tony Petramonico — In an almost unprecedented gesture of humanity in the 2012 campaign, Republican Presidential candidates yesterday condemned the murder of 17 year old Florida youth, Trayvon Martin, and called for intensified investigations to insure that justice is served in the tragedy.
I am going to pause here, and congratulate the GOP candidates. I must confess that I have gradually despaired of anything resembling humane positions or ideas issuing forth from the campaigners mouths as this spectacle has drawn on — and the truth of the matter is that I was not even sure any of them were capable of such depths of empathy, humanity — or for that matter just plain political acumen — to permit them to relate to the tragedy at hand with such sensitivity.
Way to go you guys. I am proud of you today!
