I recalled this having been written, but it was "pre-blog". Let me count the ways I love the "Way Back Machine" of the Internet! (oh, BTW, if you take the time to watch this episode, you will notice a b number of "small historical issues" (stoplights and city traffic at time of Beethoven, 4th of July as a holiday in early 1800s Austria, etc) ... those were pretty standard for Mr. Peabody!
Just read the whole thing, it explains A LOT, and it is VERY FUNNY! ... unfortunately, it is also very true, very real, and it could have been applied to a lot of (nearly always right wing) politicians in the past -- Goldwater, Nixon, Reagan, Gingrich.
Bush Derangement Syndrome: the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency -- nay -- the very existence of George W. Bush.It will unquestionably be applied in the future as well ... like Trump, where it is happening on BOTH sides.
Now, I cannot testify to Howard Dean's sanity before this campaign, but five terms as governor by a man with no visible tics and no history of involuntary confinement is pretty good evidence of a normal mental status. When he avers, however, that ``the most interesting'' theory as to why the president is ``suppressing'' the 9/11 report is that Bush knew about 9/11 in advance, it's time to check on thorazine supplies.
When Rep. Cynthia McKinney first broached this idea before the 2002 primary election, it was considered so nutty it helped make her former Rep. McKinney. Today the Democratic presidential front-runner professes agnosticism as to whether the president of the United States was tipped off about 9/11 by the Saudis, and it goes unnoticed. The virus is spreading.Humans are NOT "rational", we are RATIONALIZING, and unfortunately, when the dominant liberal media starts chasing their own tail as primitive "whirling dervishes", they become IRRATIONAL!
When BOTH SIDES go irrational, well then ....
