Three Debates, Three Hates

So Republican/Tea Party audiences will cheer for killing people via the death penalty and allowing people to die if they don't have health insurance. They will boo active-duty service members if they are homosexual. (Support our troops!)

And apparently, their leaders, standing before them, have nothing to say about this. Not that it might, just might, be inappropriate. Not that their party is a party of, well, something positive. So that kind of hate is all right with them.

Shouldn't this disqualify them from holding office? Are these the people we want running the country?

Update: Ta-Nehisi Coates says something similar.

Further Update: It is claimed that the contestants, um, candidates couldn't hear the boos on stage. Some have noted the inappropriateness.
