It’s one thing to think that former House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) deserves prison after committing financial crimes related to his alleged molestation of a number of boys while he was a high school wrestling coach.

It’s quite another to laugh at him and mock him as he heads there.

Media Matters researcher Oliver Willis, who writes for a publication (if you can even call it that), that serves as the clear arm of the Democratic Party, erupted into glee Wednesday.

“Haha?” — who writes that in relation to this news?

The wheelchair bound Hastert will spend 15 months in a federal prison facility in Rochester, Minn. He’ll reside in the hospital after suffering a stroke.
