About Those Heartless Republicans

First this story needs one caveat. You can probably count the number of Republicans in Clayton County on one hand, so I am not so sure how much success their fund raising efforts will yield, but still it is a good news story.
After he suffered a stroke 10 years ago, the 44-year-old Harris was diagnosed with an enlarged heart and congestive heart failure. He's been through 2 pacemakers and now has to use a partial artificial heart. He needs a transplant to survive.

Marxen convinced the entire Clayton County Republican Party to take on his Democratic friend as a fundraising project. "They said, 'well, that doesn't matter anyway, you know, he needs help and we need to do that,'" he added.

"We've been friends for so long, if the situation was reversed, I'd do the same for him, too," Harris said.

So they just HAD to get that little dig in there - do you think  you can FIND a good Republican heart?  THAT ANGERS ME.  Sitting right in front of him is a good Republican heart that is engaging OTHER good Republican hearts to help that man, without regard to his political opposition, and they have to put that pissy little comment in there?  GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
