Those without empathy are either psychopaths or Republican nominees for the Supreme Court.
Too bad Ted Bundy is no longer available, he was very talented at applying swift and dispassionate rulings completely lacking in empathy. Plus it gave him a boner.
He sounds like a real dreamboat of a Republican Justice.
By the way, I think John Cole may have deduced one of Jeffrey Rosen's anonymous sources (with an axe [and soon many teeth] to grind).
Speaking of boners & sociopaths, John "the President can crush a child's balls if he wants" Yoo decries empathy in judges, or I would guess, human being entirely.
You get the feeling Yoo was potty-trained via the "lit cigarette on the scrotum" method and that it happened in his early 30s.
