Passages: Predictable Crises of a Bush Hater's Life (

You, or a loved one, might be experiencing BMMIS (Bush Made Me Insane Syndrome). Fortunately the symptoms will lessen as we near '08 and his term is over, but here is a list of symptoms in order to discern the level of illness:

Stage 1 - patient expresses annoyance. Reports feelings such as "he talks funny" or "he can't even pronounce the word 'nuclear'".

Stage 2 - declares intense dislike. "He was born on third base and thinks he hit a triple". "Too upfront about his religion." "He is so unsophisticated; the Europeans are laughing at us."

Stage 3 - patient expresses a hatred that begins to cloud his judgment. Has bumper sticker on car that says "I Didn't Vote for the War Profiteer". Routinely calls the President a "liar".

Stage 4 - Sometimes referred to as the Cindy Sheehan Stage, hatred builds in proportion to lack of success in converting all Americans to his point-of-view. Sees logic in the 9/11 attacks saying "maybe we deserved it". Feels sympathy for Saddam Hussein and considers Bush a worse evil. As the patient edges towards stage 5, may begin to ascribe random meterological events to W.

Stage 5 - Patient has lost reason and rationality. Bush is responsible for global warming, Katrina, bird flu, steroids, spam, scientology, eschatology, Fox News and Rupert Murdoch. Some patients at Stage 5+ feel eternal life would be possible but for the Bush tax cuts.

Sound like anyone we know?

HT to TSO for this funny bit!

Interestingly, radio host and author Michael Savage has been saying for years that Liberalism is a Mental Disorder. Nuff said.
