For my money, this moment defined this election more than anything else.
This, coming out of Mitt Romney's mouth, so comprehensively reflected how Republicans view America that it will forever be burned into our collective memory.
They believe half the country are entitled victims who aren't willing to take responsibility for themselves. Contempt for the electorate oozes from every word uttered in this Randian screed delivered by Pastor Mitt Romney to the choir of the privileged whose own sense of entitlement to power, low taxes, and moral deferment rivals that of anyone.
It was by far the ugliest, most anti-American idea to infest the election cycle.
I give honorable mentions to self-deportation and "corporations are people."
