Bush Derangement Syndrome (BDS)

yet another syndrome aflicting far too many on the left and similar to the PEST syndrome epidemic in Florida.

No wonder the ultra liberals want Universal Health Care--someone else can pay for their mental health problems.

Will the US Media Please Stand Up?
Jane Novak

Bush Derangement Syndrome (BDS) is continuing to spread at an epidemic rate through the US media. The syndrome is characterized by blindness to anything other than US transgressions, paranoia regarding the US government, delusions of conspiracy, and a feverish hostility toward President Bush.

Like the common cold, the famous and powerful are not immune. Dan Rather was stricken and succumbed to the lure of forged documents. Walter Cronkite was caught babbling that Karl Rove "set up" Usama's last tape. Now Eason Jordan, CNN's chief news executive, is displaying symptoms.

Eason-gate (or Eason-a-Quiddick depending on your inclination) is being touted as the newest benchmark in the developing relationship between the media and their new watchdogs, the bloggers.

Bloggers have been described as an army of "digital brownshirts" by Al Gore, "a guy sitting in his living room in his pajamas writing" by Jonathan Klein, a former CBS News executive, and recently, as the "sons of McCarthy" by Bertrand Pecquerie, Director of the World Editors Forum.

Eason Jordan resigned his post amid a blogging furor that began when he stated at a recent discussion panel in Davos, Switzerland that US soldiers had targeted and killed a dozen journalists in Iraq.

Democrats Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd, who were both in the room, challenged Jordan who was unable to provide any proof. Despite requests, the videotape of his statements has not been released. ...

The headline you never saw: GWB Really Won Florida.

I saw recently that the media cartel that funded a detailed recount in Florida concluded that Bush really did win. There were no scenarios found by which he lost his margin of victory.

I guess someone decided that was old news. Rriiigggghhhhhtttttt!

So two "liberal" Democrats challenged Eason Jordan's

statements and he ultimately resigned and this is a victory for Conservatives??!!! How you make these leaps is beyond me. Superman must have been a Republican to get the kind of distance he could.

Lewis Carroll in his book about American politics called Alice in Wonderland remarked that the White Queen "could believe six impossible things before breakfast". Clearly Republican commentators and conservatives everywhere are her children.

No "victory for Conservatives" implied...

anywhere within the article (unless you consider that the two liberals briefly visiting reality is one).

The article, had you read and understood what was stated, dealt with the disturbing syndrome of the left in their refusal to face reality.

Your own post reflects this and it is apparent that you are personally afflicted with either BDS or PEST or quite possibly both. Both also seem related to an inability to comprehend. My condolances and best wishes for a speedy recovery.
