schadenfratricide

via Sully, who seems to be experiencing the same emotion.

I define this new word as "joy at seeing previous allies turn on each other in acrimony; see, e.g., Republicans right frigging now."

McCain gets castigated by (Ann) Coulter because he aligns himself too often with the Democrats. Her solution to that is --- to campaign for the Democrats? Maybe someone can explain the thought process to me, but it sounds like a hysterical demand for extortion rather than a considered and thoughtful political position.

...

It appears Coulter hates McCain more than she cares about conservative values. She has acquired McCain Derangement Syndrome, and is rather obviously unbalanced by it. Sean Hannity was clearly embarrassed to listen to this tirade, and Coulter should have been embarrassed to have indulged in it.

There's lots more where that came from.

Schadenfratricide -- s-c-h-a.....

There is, of course, another meaning for your coinage (which I do like a lot). In the process of contemplating that meaning, I may have answered in part a question that has been plaguing me. I have been stumped for some time now (as you may have gathered from other comments I have made here) as to why the public, and especially the American public, is still going home from work and then sitting around doing nothing, in light of the last seven years' events. Then it struck me. People who ARE fully fed up with the unbelievable, horrible, sadistic tyranny that has rained down these last seven years (at least) are not actually afraid to take action. To start killing the evil doers. They are afraid they will LIKE it and won't be able to stop. So, this brings us to the other meaning: Delight in killing your family/friends/neighbors/coworkers, or any other humans that are supposed to be supportive of each other but clearly are not being so.

Ahemmm. Any bells ringing out there?
