Seems left and right have decided to go beserk all at once.Â Dr Sanity (can we have more Sanity Please!) notes a pungent tirade of denial from the leftwing (where terrorism is just marketing PR).Â Some great excerpts:
1. “The Bush administration has exploited the fear and shock of a nation in the wake of a surprising and dramatic act of violence to whip national fear and paranoia into a constant boil.” (Emphasis mine)
[Dr. Sanity] This is said (presumably without any sense of irony) by a person who has at the top of his post a copy of the US Constitution with the hand written note across its front saying ” George, we can blow this off big time. Dick”
In so saying, don’t you think the author of this hysterical nonsense is whipping up his own fear and paranoia just a wee bit? Most psychiatrists would refer to this technique as projection. Further evidence of this psychological projection comes in the next accusation:
2. “The evidence suggests the whole point has been to seize power and steal money.”
[Dr. Sanity] The left has yet to notice that despite all their exhortations about the evil of American capitalism and all the misery it brings; that the economy of this country keeps on chugging along while most of the rest of the world is cheerfully going down the economic toilet as they pursue the leftist’s economic agenda?
There is nothing like a good fisking in the morning to get you started on your day!Â I am serious about the looney tunes going on in the two parties.Â If I was the tin foil hat type I would be thinking someone has spiked the water coolers with some secret mind control formula (vodka?).
But sadly, this is combination of obsession, anger and denial.Â Denial of middle road solutions, and denial that the venom these people are spewing is only hurting themselves.Â We need more professional adults in politics because the cuckoo’s nest there now is just useless. And that goes for their entourage of spin-meisters and talking heads as well.Â I have no idea what planet these people are from, but it clearly is not planet earth.
