If it was about Kerry we'd hear nothing else

Capital hill Blue, has a story up, one that I was reluctent to post hear, but realizing that this is the last bastion of balance, and given that CNN chooses to have Ralph Reed on to analyze the Edwards speech, well nuff said.

Is George Bush a Psychotic who needs pills to calm his poor paranoid ass down? Is George Bush unhinged? Lets take a look at the article:
President George W. Bush is taking powerful anti-depressant drugs to control his erratic behavior, depression and paranoia, Capitol Hill Blue has learned.

The prescription drugs, administered by Col. Richard J. Tubb, the White House physician, can impair the President’s mental faculties and decrease both his physical capabilities and his ability to respond to a crisis, administration aides admit privately.

“It’s a double-edged sword,” says one aide. “We can’t have him flying off the handle at the slightest provocation but we also need a President who is alert mentally.”
Now I have had some friends that needed to take medication for bi-polar disorders, and by no means think that these people should be categorically denied the right to serve in politics. That said, the above coupled with another story from the same source, go a long way to explaining the actions of the petulant one.
Tubb prescribed the anti-depressants after a clearly-upset Bush stormed off stage on July 8, refusing to answer reporters' questions about his relationship with indicted Enron executive Kenneth J. Lay.

“Keep those motherfuckers away from me,” he screamed at an aide backstage. “If you can’t, I’ll find someone who can.”

Bush’s mental stability has become the topic of Washington whispers in recent months. Capitol Hill Blue first reported on June 4 about increasing concern among White House aides over the President’s wide mood swings and obscene outbursts.

I'll admit right here that I have been concerned since March 2000 when McCain strpped aside, leaving the door wide open for record setting fundraiser Bush, who I realized at the time was nothing more than a congenial sock puppet. McCain, I could accept as the CINC, as the president-He is a substantially better man. But that is just me.

These reports would also go along way towards explaining all the stories about people being thrown out of Bush events after being caught with Kerry t-shirts or any other paraphenalia that would suggest that your support for dear Leader was not 10000%. He has to be isolated from any dissenting views, Shitcans carreer soldiers, Generals, who didn't agree with the neocon viewpoint before the war. I am inclined to believe that the Sock puppet is a megalomaniacal, unhinged dry drunk with a plethora of other problems and should never ever been anything but a guest at the WhiteHouse, never it's occupant. There's
Dr. Frank diagnosed the President as a “paranoid meglomaniac” and “untreated alcoholic” whose “lifelong streak of sadism, ranging from childhood pranks (using firecrackers to explode frogs) to insulting journalists, gloating over state executions and pumping his hand gleefully before the bombing of Baghdad” showcase Bush’s instabilities.

“I was really very unsettled by him and I started watching everything he did and reading what he wrote and watching him on videotape. I felt he was disturbed,” Dr. Frank said. “He fits the profile of a former drinker whose alcoholism has been arrested but not treated.”

Dr. Frank’s conclusions have been praised by other prominent psychiatrists, including Dr. James Grotstein, Professor at UCLA Medical Center, and Dr. Irvin Yalom, MD, Professor Emeritus at Stanford University Medical School.

The doctors also worry about the wisdom of giving powerful anti-depressant drugs to a person with a history of chemical dependency. Bush is an admitted alcoholic, although he never sought treatment in a formal program, and stories about his cocaine use as a younger man haunted his campaigns for Texas governor and his first campaign for President.

“President Bush is an untreated alcoholic with paranoid and megalomaniac tendencies,” Dr. Frank adds.

The White House did not return phone calls seeking comment on this article.

This should be a suprise? I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV, but I think that Bush is Batshit Insane. It really is depressing watching a 58 year old bully, if you haven't lost the inner bully by the age of 25, you are forever consigned to an immature view of the people and world around you.

One long-time GOP political consultant who – for obvious reasons – asked not to be identified said he is advising his Republican Congressional candidates to keep their distance from Bush.

“We have to face the very real possibility that the President of the United States is loony tunes,” he says sadly. “That’s not good for my candidates, it’s not good for the party and it’s certainly not good for the country.”
