P.J.D.S.? What will the left think up next?

October 16, 2008

We are aware of BDS =  Bush Derangement Syndrome, and P.D.S. = Palin Derangement Syndrome.  I am sorry to say that the Leftists have now come down with P.J.D.S. = Plumber Joe Derangment Syndrome.  According to many, Joe Wurzelbacher AKA, Plumber Joe, is a relative of Charles Keating of the Keating 5 scandal.  Who gives a flying ass’s ass, and how is this even relevant? 

Could you please remove the tin foil from your head and get out of the closet.  If not, it is a little cold.  Please put this jacket on.  I promise you will be going to a nice place where you will get plenty of fresh air, all you can eat jello, and craft time.  Just go with this nice man, he will take care of you.



Salon: Palin Derangement Syndrome

September 29, 2008

This is hilarious. Cary Tennis at Salon laments:

My perspective was, short of Obama being caught on video strangling his children with his own two hands, he had my vote, and thus I had no need to pay attention to all the nonsense that would occur in both campaigns prior to the election.


And then came Sarah. My reaction to her, and the way the Republican Party threw her in our faces, and the pandering and hypocrisy that was behind their decision to do so, was immediate, visceral, and indeed, vicious. I have crossed every line I believed should never be crossed in public discourse — I have criticized not only her policies and her record, but her hair, her personal style, her accent, her abilities as a mother, etc. I’ve also begun to suffer personally and professionally. I bore my friends with my constant tirades against her, and am constantly distracted from my work by my need to continually update myself on the latest criticism, and indeed, ridicule, of her. In my hatred for her, I have begun to hate myself.


I think what disturbs us about Sarah Palin is that she reminds us of the authoritarian personality. My guess is that she is also an ESFJ, or Extroverted Sensing Feeling Judging type, with a strong preference for sensing. Such a person prefers to acquire her knowledge from concrete objects and places instead of from abstract ideas. This would explain why she thinks being geographically close to Russia is a form of foreign policy expertise.

As an authoritarian type, she strikes us as a person who prefers power to reason. The people running John McCain’s campaign seem to instinctively understand the uses to which such an impression can be put. Perhaps they know better than we do how deeply the American people long to be done with the problem of democracy, to yield to a powerful father-mother pair of authoritarians.

The very thing that appalls us about Sarah Palin — her discomfort in the realm of reason — is her main selling point. This is so mind-boggling that you have to take a minute to let it in. Take a deep breath. Read that sentence again. Face it: Sarah Palin represents what many people want: a retreat from reason; a regression to childhood.

do they hate her really? I think that many with PDS are greatful that the void that will manifest in late January with the end of the Bush administration will be filled. When President Bush decides to take a victory lap around the White House on a Segway, there will be more than few liberals with a single tear falling down their cheek as they will no longer be able to vent their rage.
