Lying bleeding in a ditch, praying to Jesus for the end of welfare... 

Great Garrison Keillor here. The gist:
This is Democratic bedrock: we don't let people lie in the ditch and drive past and pretend not to see them dying.
No wonder teachers, and firefighters, and EMTs, and nurses, and counselors, and social workers--maybe even doctors, those demented souls--are Democrats. (Shit, maybe even police--I wouldn't think so, by my friend in D.C. who works for the cops assures me otherwise.) Anybody whose business and/or life has anything whatsoever to do with human suffering--and who gives a shit about it--is a Democrat.

(I guess that's why Republicans are so "positive": it's a lot more fun, pleasant, and positive to keep driving past the ditch and pretend you didn't see anything.)

(Scratch that: it's a lot more fun to drive headlong into the ditch, so the rear end of your SUV is sticking up in the air and all the Democrats who come to rescue your bleeding carcass can see the Power of Pride bumper sticker displayed powerfully and pridefully on your totalled wreck.)
