Is There A Psychiatrist In the House?

The more I read the latest of Glen Beck and Teabagger's  insane babblings and what they are about the more I think that they might need to see a good head shrink.  And to think they represent those on the right's values and ideals. Scary!  Or are Americans that stressed out that they are just not thinking straight these days.

As a child I would sometimes spend the summer with my grandmother. I remember back then how my grandmother would sometimes take in boarders who were family members or friends.  They were family or friends who had moved from the South to the West Coast in search of employment, a better life, and to escape the severeness of Jim Crow.   She would give them a temporary place to stay until they could get on their feet and secure their own place.

Anyway, I remember one cousin who was an alcoholic. The stress caused from racism had drove him to drinking heavily.  Alcohol was his stress reliever.  However, his drinking heavily caused him and even bigger problem...alcoholic "Delirium tremens" and he would have hallucinations whenever he stopped drinking for a few days and would say some of the craziest things. 

Glen Beck reminds me of that alcoholic cousin with all his blackboard and chalk conspiracies.  The only difference is my cousin wasn't a danger to our American society as a whole because we kept him in the house whenever he had his little hallucination moments out of other people's sight.  However, Fox We Make Up Lies News likes to show Glen Beck off as a so-called savior of the people who is warning us and trying to save us from our President who he claims is a "Socialist" and "Muslim" and "Communist" that is out to destroy America.  All of these are hallucinations which stem from Glen Beck.

Then there are the other candidates that the teabaggers are backing like Christine O'Donnell, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Meg Whitman, Ron Johnson, and don't forget the Miller guy in Alaska and a few other wierdoes.  After Levy's interview on MSNBC yesterday it makes me think that those folks in Wasilla, Alaska don't believe in reading newspapers or require that their schools teach government civics classes.  I guess they don't think they need them seeing how they can see Russia from their backyard.

The one dude that is really scary is that Paladino who is running for governer in New York with his thuggish mannerisms.  He reminds me of one of those characters in a mobster movie.  Well...considering the background of his aides he might be a real-life thug.

What disturbs me is that these GOP candidates are against government.  Okay, so why would anyone who is against government run in the first place?  Do they not realize that the positions they are running for are government positions?

Onme does question their intelligence. They say the most ranmdom a@#* things. Do they even think before they speak? Your last paragraph had me laughing. I guess they don't think.

I visited with my sister and her husband yesterday--always a mostly unpleasant visit for me. My brother-in-law, knowing that I'm a liberal, always has taped shows of Sean Hannity, or Glenn Beck on when I enter the house.

It's all I can do not to turn around and return home.

Not only are the Fox News inmates insane or bordering on insanity, they have infected the minds of millions in our country--my sister and her husband being among the millions so infected.

I don't think they do too much thinking or have the capability to think on that side of the political arena. That is a very rare trait for them. :>)


Diapora:

Oh my, you really did have a rough day. Buy that DVD documentary
"Outfoxed" and take it with you the next time or invite them over to your house and play it for them. I bet that will cure them.

There is nothing wrong with Beck, Hannity, or Paladino. You just can't accept that they are intelligent strong human beings quite capable of winning the political war. They are not crazy or stupid.

See, that statement above is what is scary.

Glenn Beck is a psycho idiot! You're blind in one eye and can't see out of the other. Pray tell? What is your definition of intelligence? Sean Hannity is a college drop-out and if I'm not mistaken Glenn Beck dropped out of high school. Sarah Palin is dumb & ignorant. Ask Katie Couric? Palin doesn't read, doesn't know that Africa is a continent, can't name a major newspaper, scribbles on her hand, & mocks education.

What is your definition of intelligence?

The people that back the likes of Christine O'Donnell, do they think that if all the legislatures were like her, that we wouldn't have an operational government. Or are they counting on the hated bureaucrats to keep working so they'd get their check on time.
