The Rhetoric of National Insanity

Publishes extensive study on 'Psychological Causes of Political Madness'

“‘Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded’, says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness". ‘Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave’. While political activists on the other side of the spectrum have made similar observations, Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to "the vast right-wing conspiracy".”

Yeah, that's great. But who or what will hold The Obama Himself and his liberal insane asylum accountable?

In the aftermath of 9/11, I experienced a personal aftershock when, for the first time, I was made aware that a not insignificant fraction of the population was not outraged by what had occurred on that day of infamy. Ever since then I have been tormented by that knowledge. What could possibly account for such a convoluted mind set that, for want of a better description, I had simply referred to as "insanity". Who knew?

In today's episode of "The World According to the View from Inside the Asylum", the rhetoric of The Obama Himself smoothly blended sensible-sounding BS together with gems such as equating the presumed merits of this pending financial legislation with the corresponding "merits" of the monstrously wrong-headed (and multi-headed) Obamacare law that was Rahm-ed through Congress against the better judgement of the majority of our insanity-surviving electorate.

Of course, this pending legislation might just become the silver bullet that will cure all the ills on Wall Street, where the Administration has deposited all the blame for everything from our continuing recession to the evils of athlete's foot. But, I predict, and you can quote me on this, the totality of unintended consequences emanating from this Congressional pack of mad-dog liberals, will far outweigh any possible good that can come of this, the next atrocity-in-the-making.
